BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE On diffusion-weighted (DW) images, primary hematomas are initially mainly hyperintense, and then hypointense during the first few days after stroke onset. As in other brain disorders, variations in the T2 relaxation time of the hematoma influence the DW imaging signal intensity. Our aim was to evaluate the contribution of the T2 signal intensity and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) changes to signal intensity displayed by DW imaging through the course of hematoma… CONTINUE READING
