the present study, we developed a 2-level classification model with an overall
accuracy of 88.1 ± 6.7% for discriminating the stroke hemisphere into the infarct core (IC), ischemic penumbra (IP), and normal tissue regions on a voxel-wise basis in a permanent left middle cerebral artery occlusion model. According to the
analysis results, we suggest that a single diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) sequence combined with machine learning (ML) algorithms can dichotomize ischemic tissue into the IC and IP, which are
comparable to the conventional perfusion–diffusion mismatch.
