Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe the clinico-radiological correlations of magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) abnormalities in ischemic stroke. Eighteen patients had undergone MR imaging and clinical evaluation within 24 h of symptom onset and at or after 7 days. During the first 24 h the volume of perfusion abnormality (measured on the relative mean transit time map) was larger than the DWI lesion in 12/18 patients. In 6/18 patients the DWI lesion volume was larger. Acutely (<24 h) all lesion volumes showed a significant correlation with acute clinical severity measured by the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score. The correlations of the hypoperfusion volume (rho = 0.86, p = 0.0001) and the volume 'tissue at risk' (larger than the DWI and perfusion lesion volumes, rho = 0.86, p = 0.0001) with acute clinical severity were slightly higher than for the DWI lesion volume (rho = 0.76, p = 0.0001). The difference between the volume of tissue at risk (acutely) and the infarct on follow-up T2-weighted imaging correlated significantly with change in clinical severity from acute to chronic time points (rho = 0.72, p = 0.001). Such clinico-radiological relationships may support the use of DWI and perfusion MR in decisions concerning the administration and evaluation of stroke therapies. Copyright (C) 2000 S.
