The key to thrombolytic therapy in acute ischemic stroke is identifying the areas of infarct lesion in acute stage. By using a prototype simultaneous multi-slice accelerated (SMS) EPI sequence for DKI data recording, the total acquisition time could be cut down to 1/2~1/3 of standard EPI-based DKI without losing SNR. In the identification of the final infarct size in acute ischemic stroke, the volume measurements by SMS DKI in the acute-phase is more reliable than that of ADC, and the DKI data could be acquired in a reasonable time with the SMS EPI sequence.
