BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to assess the diagnostic usefulness of early diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) and MR angiography (MRA) in patients with ischemic stroke. Past approaches to stroke diagnosis required a series of diagnostic tests over several days of hospitalization. New magnetic resonance methodologies that include DWI and MRA may allow more rapid characterization of stroke pathophysiology. However, no previous study has assessed the impact on formal stroke… CONTINUE READING
