CT scan, to define if the brain is evident of a stroke, and an MRI to give a detailed explanation of how bad the stroke is.

Most commonly at the beginning of a stroke, or the onset of a stroke, there is no evidence on the brain. Depending on the severity of the stroke, will determine if it can be shown on the brain.
