Acute cerebral ischemic injury can be rapidly detected on diffusion-weighted images. The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) depends on the stage of cytotoxic edema and water content in the infarcted parenchyma. The purpose of this study is to determine the time course of ADC during the first days of ischemic stroke. These data should make it possible to distinguish between multiple stroke and a single progressive infarction. Eight patients with clinically diagnosed acute cerebral ischemia… CONTINUE READING
