Stroke is mainly caused due to hemorrhage or ischemia due to infarct. Current work aims to develop a phantom which can mimic structure and function of a human brain stroke using 3D print technology. The normal human brain vasculature was printed using Poly Lactic Acid. An ischemic infarct was mimicked using Poly Vinyl Alcohol and a cerebral aneurysm was integrated to the vasculature to demonstrate simultaneous onset of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke. Waterflow to the phantom was introduced by integrating the peristaltic pump. T1, T2 , DW images and T 1and T2maps were generated which depict the stroke vasculature
