Clinical experience with diffusion-weighted MR in patients with acute stroke.
PURPOSE Our purpose was to evaluate the clinical efficacy, sensitivity, and specificity of echo-planar diffusion-weighted MR imaging in patients with acute infarction. METHODS We retrospectivelyExpand

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Acute Stroke
In the investigation of ischemic stroke, conventional structural magnetic resonance (MR) techniques (e.g., T1-weighted imaging, T2-weighted imaging, and proton density-weighted imaging) are valuableExpand

Enlargement of human cerebral ischemic lesion volumes measured by diffusion‐weighted magnetic resonance imaging
We aimed to determine the frequency and time course of the enlargement of ischemic cerebral lesions following human stroke and to study the effect of the state of perfusion on lesion enlargement.Expand

Circulating endothelial microparticles in acute ischemic stroke: a link to severity, lesion volume and outcome
Summary.  Background: Endothelial membrane microparticles (EMP) in plasma are elevated in several vascular diseases. Objectives: To test the hypothesis that EMP would be increased in patients withExpand

A three-item scale for the early prediction of stroke recovery
BACKGROUND Accurate assessment of prognosis in the first hours of stroke is desirable for best patient management. We aimed to assess whether the extent of ischaemic brain injury on magneticExpand

Using Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells to Determine a Gene Expression Profile of Acute Ischemic Stroke: A Pilot Investigation
Background—Direct brain biopsy is rarely indicated during acute stroke. This study uses peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) to determine whether a systemic gene expression profile could beExpand

Comparison of MRI and CT for detection of acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
CONTEXT Noncontrast computed tomography (CT) is the standard brain imaging study for the initial evaluation of patients with acute stroke symptoms. Multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) hasExpand
