66-year old man presented with stroke and seizure. a T2-weighted image shows multiple hyperintense lesions in the right frontoparietal area (arrows). b, c DW image shows these lesions as very hyperintense with decreased ADC, representing acute infarcts in the watershed area between anterior and middle cerebral arteries (arrows). d MRA shows bilateral stenoses of internal carotid, and middle and anterior cerebral arteries (arrows). 2. 1 Predisposing Factors Perfusion MR imaging may be more sensitive than DW imaging in the detection of a hyperacute cerebral infarction, but it currently entails extensive post-processing to create interpretable perfusion maps (Figs.

D Perfusion-weighted image shows increase in mean transit time of the entire left anterior and MCA territories. e Follow-up DW image 2 days later shows only a very subtle hyperintensity in the left frontal white matter (arrows). f ADC was normalized, which is in accordance with clinical improvement. 7 Watershed Infarction Watershed infarction may develop between two major vascular territories or within a single territory in the supraganglionic white matter, a border zone of the superficial and deep penetrating arterioles (Fig.
