BACKGROUND Previous studies identified a high frequency of silent ischemic lesion recurrence on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after an index stroke. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether ischemic lesion recurrence on MRI predicts subsequent clinical events. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING General community hospital. Patients We recruited 120 patients who experienced an acute ischemic stroke (IS) and who underwent initial MRI within 24 hours of onset and subsequent MRI on day 5… CONTINUE READING
