BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The goal of this study was to evaluate the utility of perfusion-weighted CT (PWCT) in predicting final infarct volume and clinical outcome in patients with acute middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke. METHODS Twenty-two consecutive patients with MCA stem occlusion who underwent intra-arterial thrombolysis within 6 hours of stroke onset had noncontrast CT and CT angiography with whole-brain PWCT imaging before treatment. Infarct volumes were computed from the initial PWCT… CONTINUE READING
