  • Look Inside

To clarify the clinical significance of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) hyperintensity in acute cerebral ischemia, 34 patients were investigated with cerebral ischemia that had lasted no more than 8 hours. Either a spin echo sequence with navigator echo (n=21) or an echo planar sequence (n=13) was used for DWI using 1.5 tesla magnet. The eventual infarction was judged from T2-weighted image (T2 WI) or CT performed 2-12 days after the onset and was classified into cortical (n=24) or perforating artery (n=10) area.
