BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) has become a commonly used imaging modality in stroke centers. The value of this method as a routine procedure is still being discussed. In previous studies, CT was always performed before DWI. Therefore, infarct progression could be a reason for the better result in DWI. METHODS All hyperacute (<6 hours) stroke patients admitted to our emergency department with a National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score >3 were prospectively… CONTINUE READING
