Higher prevalence of cortical lesions observed in patients with acute stroke using high-resolution diffusion-weighted imaging.


Ischemic lesion conspicuity on routine diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI, 30 seconds) was compared with an improved sequence (high-resolution DWI [DWI-HR], 256 seconds) having increased spatial resolution and signal to noise and decreased eddy current artifact in 42 patients with acute ischemic stroke. Total lesion volumes were similar; however, twice as many… (More)
