Abstract Major progress has recently been made in the neuro-imaging of stroke as a result of improvements in imaging hardware and software. Imaging may be based on either magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) techniques. Imaging should provide information on the entire vascular cervical and intracranial network, from the aortic arch to the circle of Willis. Equally, it should also give information on the viability of brain tissue and brain hemodynamics. CT has the advantage in the detection of acute hemorrhage whereas MRI offers more accurate pathophysiological information in the follow-up of patients.
