Acute ischemic strokes due to infectious vasculitis c. Artifact: T2 shine-through d. Ischemic-gliotic changes View Answer 4. (B) The diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequence (Fig. 2) reveals several punctate areas of restricted diffusion within superficial cortex of both cerebral hemispheres in multiple vascular distributions. Other Considerations: T2 shine-through is a common artifact that can be seen in DWI when there are hyperintensities present in MRI T2 sequences. These are artifacts and are not associated with ischemia.
1) shows the classical aparence of ovoid, hypointense lesions oriented perpendicularly to the ventricular surface along the callososeptal seam. When they are linear and appear to radiate along the medullary veins, these lesions are known as Dawson fingers. Other Considerations: Metastatic lesions are often localized to the grayâ white matter junction and enhance with contrast, usually with a ring or solid enhancement pattern. Ischemic-gliotic changes are due to small vessel disease, are nonenhancing, and have a symmetric distribution in the periventricular white matter.
