Electric properties tomography (EPT) is a new contrast in MRI which delivers information on tissue electrical conductivity. Up to now, it has been mostly used for tumor mapping. Ischemic cerebral stroke is another promising application. Seven male Wistar rats were used in this study. Five culled animals from another stroke study, three of which were subjected to MCAO and two live animals which were also subjected to MCAO were examined. Healthy cortical grey matter, white matter and cerebrospinal fluid could be well differentiated Conductivity was altered within the infarct. EPT is feasible in a rodent model of stroke.
