Abstract

In recent years there has been a rapid development of new imaging methods of central nervous system, based on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Such techniques as CT and MR perfusion as well as diffusion MR create new possibilities in diagnostics of cerebral ischemia. These methods enable to visualize ichemic foci in the very early stage of stroke. Moreover they allow to define the extent of infarction and penumbra areas, which is very important in selecting the candidates for thrombolytic treatment. The aim of this paper is to discuss application of new imaging methods in early stage of ischemic stroke.
