Venice—Neuroimaging is beginning to come into its own for the precise diagnosis of stroke and, potentially, for determining and monitoring stroke therapy.
New techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), particularly diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI), are expected to have substantial clinical impact on the detection and characterization of stroke.
