Stroke is one of the major reasons for death and disability globally. The abstract aims to review stroke imaging in geographies with limited access to scanners, particularly North Eastern India and the interior regions of Portugal. The critical operating window of treatment to reverse the damage is of few hours. Neuroimaging plays a significant role in diagnosis and treatment of stroke. It is necessary to explore accessible methods to deliver point of care MR stroke services in such regions. The current work includes stroke incidence, disability adjusted life years, scanner density and feasibility of low field MRI for stroke.
