OBJECTIVE: Pyrexia is associated with poor outcome after stroke, but the temperature changes in the brain after stroke are poorly understood. We used magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (water-to-N-acetylaspartate frequency shift) to measure cerebral temperature noninvasively in stroke patients. METHODS: We performed magnetic resonance diffusion, perfusion (diffusion- and perfusion-weighted imaging), and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging, compared temperatures in tissues as defin...Expand abstract
