    SUPERSEDED AND ARCHIVED – View the latest version Date published: 1 October, 2010 Topics: CT, Managers, MRI, X-ray

    Summary

    Radiographers are a vital part of the specialist stroke care team. Patients with acute brain attack require rapid access to high quality and appropriate imaging in order to diagnose the type of stroke.

    Patients who suffer a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) have been shown to be at high risk of suffering an ischaemic stroke and also require urgent imaging after appropriate assessment in order to ensure reduced morbidity.
