Comparison of CT with diffusion-weighted MRI in patients with hyperacute stroke


Tissue changes in ischaemic stroke are detectable by diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) within minutes of the onset of symptoms. However, in daily routine CT is still the preferred imaging modality for patients with acute stroke. Our purpose of this study was to determine how early and reliably ischaemic brain infarcts can be identified by CT and DWI. Three… (More)
