BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The identification of the tissue at risk for infarction remains challenging in stroke patients. In this study, we evaluated the value of quantitative cerebral blood flow (CBF) and cerebral blood volume (CBV) measurements in the prediction of infarct growth in hyperacute stroke. METHODS Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR), diffusion-weighted (DW), and gradient-echo echo-planar perfusion-weighted (PW) sequences were obtained in 66 patients within 6 hours of stroke… CONTINUE READING
