Further characterisation of a thromboembolic model of stroke in the rat.

We have used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to characterise a rat model of thromboembolic stroke. The consequences of acute perfusion deficit associated with a middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAo) by a newly formed thrombus was mapped by interrogation of the tissue oxygenation status using gradient echo methods and production of T2* maps… CONTINUE READING
