This tutorial provides the clinician with a six point approach to choosing diagnostic tests for the evaluation of ischemic stroke and TIA. The differential diagnosis of cerebral ischemia, prevalence of etiologies, and selection of diagnostic tests will be examined. Patient cases are used to demonstrate key points, with focus on common etiologies and red flags findings for uncommon etiologies of cerebral ischemia.
- Distinguish the major causes of cerebral ischemia and their prevalence in the general population
- Identify the most common cause of cryptogenic cerebral ischemia
- Apply the six common questions in evaluating a patient with cerebral ischemia to individual case studies
