  • Look Inside

Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging was performed to determine the detectability of ischemic changes in patients with ischemic cere-brovascular disease. We retrospectively reviewed 103 patients with symptoms suggestive of ischemic cere-brovascular disease. All patients underwent computed tomography, routine magnetic resonance imaging, and diffusion-weighted imaging. Of 103 patients, 18 were imaged within 3 hours after onset, 57 were imaged be-tween 3 and 24 hours, and 29 were imaged between 24 and 144 hours. Eighty-eight patients were diag-nosed as ischemic cerebrovascular disease.
