BACKGROUND MR diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) shows acute ischemic lesions early after stroke so it might improve outcome prediction and reduce sample sizes in stroke treatment trials. Previous studies of DWI and outcome produced conflicting results. OBJECTIVE To determine whether DWI lesion characteristics independently predict outcome in a broad range of patients with acute stroke. METHODS The authors recruited hospital-admitted patients with all severities of suspected stroke, assessed… CONTINUE READING
