The presence, dynamic evolution, and outcome of the ischemic penumbra (IP) are important for the choice of treatment options and prognosis. At present, there is currently no study to combine the APTw MRI with the blood flow measurements for IP analyses. Purpose of this study was to analyze the association between APT metabolic changes and blood flow status in the IP of patients with subacute infarction in the unilateral middle cerebral artery by APT and ASL techniques. Significant correlations of APTw values to CBF values of PLD1.5.
