Our expert says:
One can suspect a diagnosis of a stroke with a clinical diagnosis (looking at signs and symptoms) but we usually follow up with a brain scan and doppler examination of the neck to confirm the diagnosis. Some places do not have MRI and doppler facilities and then a patient would be treated as if it is a stroke. Bloods are usually drawn to test for bleeding tendencies, cholesterol etc.
