Among 46 noncontrast magnetic resonance studies on patients with cerebral infarction, 11 showed areas of high signal intensity of the involved brain on T1-weighted images. These areas were more frequent in cerebral or cerebellar cortical lesions. Lacunar infarcts in lenticular nuclei, internal capsules, corona radiata, or brain stem did not show any high signal intensity areas on T1-weighted images, whereas the thalamic infarcts did. Sequential studies revealed that these lesions displayed low signal intensity on T2-weighted images at first, and then a high signal intensity area appeared on T1-weighted images. We suggest that these high signal intensity areas on the T1-weighted images in cerebral infarction are caused by hemorrhagic changes at the periphery of the infarction, where blood flow is restored by recanalization or collateral supply.
