Evaluation of the ischemic penumbra focusing on the venous drainage: the role of susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) in pediatric ischemic cerebral stroke.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) allows the study of the intracranial venous vasculature based on the paramagnetic susceptibility effects of deoxygenated blood. Prominent hypointense draining veins have been revealed in ischemic brain tissue by SWI. The goal of our study was to evaluate whether a match or mismatch between… (More)
