Staff at the Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics have helped the Acute Vascular Imaging Centre to reach a major landmark that could boost care for stroke patients.

Landmark in stroke treatement

Dr Matt Rowland and Dr Kyle Pattinson were part of a team who, for the first time, used state-of-the-art MRI technology to scan a critically ill patient in order to find out how blood flow in the brain is affected by a subarachnoid haemorrhage. 

The scanning was carried out at the Acute Vascular Imaging Centre (AVIC), part of the Radcliffe Department of Medicine at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Matt Rowland said: 'The opportunity to scan these patients will allow us to look for new ways to improve treatment'.
