Virtual Stroke Lab

Description of the Stroke Lab
The Stroke LabIn this virtual experience, students role-play a radiologist in a special clinic located in the SEPA/NCRRVirtual Research & Medical Center. After familiarizing themselves with the clinic, students receive an urgent message that a patient, who may be the victim of a stroke, awaits diagnosis in the emergency room. The student consults the patient’s history and checks to see if he has any of the risk factors for stroke. A decision then has to be made about what diagnostic procedures are required. The student learns about primary and secondary diagnostic tests, orders the test, and performs procedures to save the life of the patient.
