MRI demonstration of Wallerian degeneration in various intracranial lesions and its clinical implications.

Dynamic signal intensity changes of Wallerian degeneration (WD) are well documented in cases of stroke. These changes have been staged I-IV, depending on time-specific signal intensity changes in corticospinal tract with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We performed both prospective and retrospective evaluation of various intracranial lesions to look for… (More)
