National Institute for Health Award

November 2010 - National Institute for Health award to SINAPSE researchers

The National Institute for Health has awarded £270,000 to SINAPSE researchers in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow for a study, to be led by Prof Joanna Wardlaw (Edinburgh) looking at the cost-effectiveness of brain imaging in patients who have suffered a mini stroke - or transient ischaemic attack. Over 80,000 people have mini strokes every year in the UK, and current research about the best way to diagnose them hasn't given a clear picture of the most effective approach. This study will help decide which method is more effective at diagnosing mini stroke and also determine whether it could potentially prevent people from suffering a more severe stroke.
