MR imaging of wallerian degeneration in the human brain stem after ictus

Abstract

Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of wallerian degeneration in the brain stem was studied in 30 hemiplegic patients within 12 months of ictus. As early as 25 days after the ictus, decreased signal intensities on proton-density (PD)-weighted images were observed in the brain stem ipsilaterally. This hypointensity gradually approached an isointense stage during… (More)
