Abstract

Diffusion and perfusion magnetic resonance imaging are first choice techniques for the investigation of acute ischaemia in man. Diffusion- weighted MR will disclose tissue damage caused by ischaemia just a few minutes after ischaemic insult. In contrast, perfusion-weighted MR will evaluate brain haemodynamics and hence disclose areas not yet damaged, but at risk of evolving into infarction. The combined use of these two imaging techniques gives a full picture of patients with acute ischaemic stroke for the purposes of prognosis and treatment. Literature findings are discussed in the light of our personal experience.
