In this study, clinical applicability of the recently proposed generalized phase based EPT method has been investigated for two patients with neurovascular diseases in the subacute phase, i.e. hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. In the case of ischemia, conductivity was found to be increased in the lesion area. In the case of hematoma, although the conductivity of the surrounding edema region was found to be increased, the conductivity in the hematoma region itself was found to be similar to that of brain tissue.
