Clinical Stroke &
Advancing stroke care through
innovations in neuroimaging research.
We take a network perspective on the human brain in healthy aging and cerebrovascular diseases. Our key scientific interest is the understanding of network effects induced by localized lesions and how this relates to clinical impairment and recovery in stroke and cerebrovascular diseases.
We use multiparametric MRI to better understand the pathophysiology of cerebrovascular disease and to optimize acute stroke treatment. We aim at identifying novel treatment approaches guided by MRI, such as the DWI-FLAIR-mismatch concept to identify stroke patients with unknown time of symptom onset who are likely to benefit from intravenous thrombolysis.
