Figure 2: Diffusion-weighted imaging and Computed tomography perfusion of a 84-year-old woman with right side weakness and neurological deterioration. Admission modified National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale was 3 (1 point for right arm and 2 points for right leg). Patient was treated with aspirin and clopidogrel. Right side weakness worsened on day 2. diffusion-weighted imaging performed 14 h from last known well showed acute ischemic stroke in the left thalamus and posterior limb of internal capsule (a and b) with corresponding increased time to peak on Computed tomography perfusion (c and d) performed 6 h from last known well
