  • Look Inside

MR diffusion-weighted imaging was performed to investigate changes in water diffusion in patients with cerebral infarction, and diffusion-weighted images (DWI) were compared with T2-weighted images (T2WI). Acute and subacute infarcts were seen as areas of high intensity on DWI and showed lower apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs), while chronic infarcts showed a relative increase in ADCs. The relative ADC increased progressively over time, becoming renormalized at 3 to 4 weeks, and was elevated in the chronic state. On DWI.
