Abnormalities on diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging performed several weeks after a minor stroke or transient ischaemic attack.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: Diffusion weighted brain imaging (DWI) is used in acute stroke, and also shows an acute ischaemic lesion in most transient ischamic attack (TIA) patients scanned acutely. However, it may also be useful in identifying subacute ischaemic lesions in patients with minor stroke or TIA who present several weeks after symptom onset. This study investigated the sensitivity and the observer reproducibility of DWI in cerebral TIA and minor ischaemic stroke patients scanned more than two wee...
