In this study, we propose a modified fast MR 8-minutes stroke protocol including Flair-TSE, DWI, SWI, 3D-pCASL and 3D-non-contrast-MRA that can provide complete information covering the whole spectrum of core-infarct, hemorrhagic-components, vessel-occlusion and ischemic-penumbra. The time duration of this protocol is sufficiently shorter with the benefit of using Compressed-SENSE acceleration algorithm. This MR based stroke protocol does not involve any harmful radiation and contrast media. In our study, this protocol is validated in clinical setting and benefits the therapy-planning of about 70% of patients presented acute ischemic stroke. This protocol has the potential to be adapted for acute-stroke management strategies.
