The MRI prediction of the risk of infarct growth is essential for decision making in acute stroke treatment. A method only based on DWI and ADC maps has been recently developped to identify the at-risk tissue. In this study, this new method is compared to the gold standard, the PWI/DWI mismatch. It is as efficient as the PWI/DWI mismatch for the prediction of infarct growth and more efficient for the prediction of infarct volume. The ADC-based methods performances are similar during and after the therapeutic window (4H30) whereas they are significantly lower after 4h30 after stroke onset with the PWI/DWI mismatch.
