The Stroke Research Center Bern is conducting a survey on covert brain infarction, to gather information on current practice and attitudes towards covert brain infarctions from medical practitioners who encounter them in their daily work.
Although covert brain infarction (previously known as a silent stroke) is the most frequent incidental finding in cerebral imaging, there is little information to guide management and therefore expert opinions differ on diagnostic work-up and preventive management. This survey aims to collect data that may contribute to addressing that problem and identify priorities for research.
The survey, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, can be found here.
Please feel free to distribute the link to any other colleagues who also encounter covert brain infarction in their routine work including neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons.
