The current study demonstrated the utility of bi- and stretched-exponential diffusion models in characterize the non-Gaussian diffusion behavior in acute/subacute stroke. The preliminary results suggest that the bi- and stretched -exponential model can help better describe the complex behavior of water diffusion in acute/subacute stroke, and may provide more detailed and useful metrics for lesion assessment and prognosis.
