Abstract

Multiplanar magnetic resonance (MR) images of 77 discrete infarcts in the basal grey matter region from 71 patients were reviewed for their distribution and extent, in correlation with the distribution of perforating arteries on cadaver microangiograms. On MRI, the distribution and extent of lesions in the supply area of individual groups of arteries, as determined on axial images, conformed well to the distribution of each group of arteries. This would be expected from the relevant findings on coronal and sagittal microangiograms. Multiplanar MRI enabled precise evaluation of involved vascular territories of cerebral infarcts in the basal grey matter region.
