BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) are relatively new MR techniques increasingly used in acute stroke. During the first hours of stroke evolution, the regions with abnormal perfusion are typically larger than the DWI lesions, and this mismatch region has been suggested to be "tissue at risk." The aim of this study was to evaluate the PWI/DWI mismatch region in acute stroke patients and find parameters indicative of both infarct… CONTINUE READING
