Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The use of MR angiography and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted MR imaging in cases of acute cerebral ischemia may be helpful in the evaluation of middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion and leptomeningeal collaterals, respectively. The aim of our work was to investigate the relationship between MCA occlusion, T1-weighted vascular contrast enhancement, hemodynamic alterations, and tissue damage in cases of acute ischemic stroke. METHODS: We studied the MCA territory in 15 patients with acute ischemic stroke within 8 hr of symptom onset. The first MR imaging study (
