Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.

An ischaemic stroke happens when a blood clot, or other blockage, cuts off the blood supply to your brain. This is the most common type of stroke.
A haemorrhagic stroke is a stroke that is caused by bleeding in or around the brain. Although they are less common than strokes that are caused by a blockage, they can be much more serious.
No two strokes are the same. How well you recover and how long it takes is different for everyone, but making sure that you receive treatment as quickly as possible will give you the best chance of making a good recovery.
This guide explains what private treatments are available for stroke, and what to consider before deciding if they are right for you. It covers rehabilitation therapies like physiotherapy, as well as health checks and scans.
