Summary The aim of this project will be to explore the utility of multimodal imaging in stroke assessment.

Project Details

Quantitative measures from different magnetic resonance imaging sequences provide complimentary information on the pathology of stroke. Ischemia is found to preferentially exert a larger effect on the intra- than extra-axonal microenvironment of WM, consistent with a proposed mechanism of axonal beading. This project will explore clinical utility multimodal imaging measures such as CT and MR.  The students will be mentored and work within a multidisciplinary team in the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, and University of Melbourne as well as other collaborators (in Melbourne and internationally). An additional top-up PhD scholarship will be available for qualified students. The specific details of the project will be discussed with interested candidates. Publication of results is expected at the end of the project for Masters and PhD students.
