Sensitivity and Interrater Agreement of CT and Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging in Hyperacute Stroke
AJNR 24:878-885, Saur,D.,et al, 2003
See this aricle in Pubmed

Article Abstract
DW imaging helped identify EIS with higher sensitivity than that of CT. The interrater variability of the one-third rule was high for CT, and thus the clinical applicability of CT is limited. Our results support the application of stroke MR imaging for the treatment of patients with acute stroke.
