Ischemic Injury Detected by Diffusion Imaging 11 Minutes after Stroke
Ann Neurol 58:462-465, Hjort,N.,et al, 2005
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
A 78-year-old woman suffered a stroke inside a magnetic resonance scanner while being imaged because of a brief transient ischemic attack 2 hours earlier. Diffusion-weighted images obtained 11 minutes after stroke showed tissue injury not found on initial images. The data show early, abrupt diffusion changes in hypoperfused tissue, adding to our understanding of the progression of microstructural abnormalities in the hyperacute phase of stroke.
