Dr Mark Rodrigues, Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman (both Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published findings indicating that detecting the cause of the deadliest form of stroke could be improved by a simple blood test added alongside a routine brain scan. Their findings suggest that a genetic test for APOE, combined with a CT scan, could be used to detect stroke caused by intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH).
