Phase N/A Results

Results

The acute rCBF lesion most accurately identified tissue in the PWI.DWI mismatch region at risk of infarction with the strongest correlation with final infarct size (r50.91, P,0.001) and clinical outcome (r50.67, P,0.01). Color-thresholded PWI maps show potential for use in an acute clinical setting to prospectively predict tissue outcome.
