Document Title: Stroke and Neuroimaging
Document type: PDF
Author: Diane Jardine.
My name is Diane Jardine, only an RN for 4 yrs (started late haha… Im 48 yr) I did this assignment on stroke and neuroimaging for a Masters through UON. I work at Wollongong Hospital. I would LOVE to see more education and sharing of knowledge.
This paper is not great but not bad.
The purpose was a presentation to non nursing members of the community and our challenge was to present it in a way that was plain and could be understood.

Identifying and diagnosing stroke type in a patient is the core element to effective treatment and is central to providing comprehensive management of care.
The gold standard of identification is through contemporary neuroimaging to establish an accurate extent of neurological impairment following stroke.
To be discussed are the types, prevalence and classifications of stroke, the pathophysiology of stroke and the need for early assessment so as to provide best possible management of stroke and the need of early neuroimaging to assist clinicians to determine best treatment.
The different modalities of neuroimaging will be identified and how these tests identify and decide on best the plan of care, whether it is for the initial diagnosis, ongoing pathway of care or prevention of stroke.
