Sodium 22 was used to determine quantitatively cerebral infarction edema in cats after occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. A comparison was made of the sodium 22 edema determination with the wet weight dry weight method of edema determination. There was a high degree of correlation between the 2 methods. The sodium 22 method of measuring cerebral infarction edema was less time consuming and easier than the wet weight dry weight method, and served as a reliable means of quantitatively comparing the edema content in the hemispheres of animals with stroke.
