CONTEXT To evaluate the additional information that susceptibility weighted sequences and datasets would provide in acute stroke. AIMS The aim of this study were to assess the value addition of susceptibility weighted magnetic resonance imaging (SWI) of brain in patients with acute arterial infarct. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients referred for a complete brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) between March 2010 and March 2011 at our institution had SWI as part of routine MRI (T1, T2, and… CONTINUE READING

Retrospective study of 62 consecutive patients with acute arterial infarct was evaluated for the presence of macroscopic hemorrhage , petechial micro - bleeds , dark middle cerebral artery ( MCA ) sign and prominent vessels in the vicinity of infarct .
SWI has been previously shown to be sensitive in detecting hemorrhage ; however is not routinely used in stroke evaluation .
