AIMS: To validate whether the optimal magnetic resonance perfusion (MRP) thresholds for ischemic penumbra and infarct core, between voxel and volume-based analysis, are varied greatly among Chinese acute ischemic stroke patients.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Acute ischemic stroke patients receiving intravenous thrombolysis within 6 h of onset that obtained acute and 24-h MRP were reviewed. Patients with either no reperfusion (<30% reperfusion at 24 h) or successful reperfusion (>70% reperfusion at 24 h) were enrolled to investigate the ischemic penumbra and infarct core, respectively. The final infarct was assessed on 24-h diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), which was retrospectively matched to the baseline perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) images by volume or voxel-based analysis. The optimal thresholds that determined by each approach were compared.
RESULTS: From June 2009 to Jan 2014, of 50 patients enrolled, 19 patients achieved no reperfusion, and 20 patients reperfused at 24 h. In patients with no reperfusion, Tmax > 6 seconds was proved of the best agreement with the final infarct in both volumetric analysis (ratio: 1.05, 95% limits of agreement:-0.23 to 2.33, P < 0.001) and voxel-by-voxel analysis (sensitivity: 72.3%, specificity: 74.3%). In patients with reperfusion, rMTT>225% (ratio:2.4, 95% limits of agreement: -6.5 to 11.4, P < 0.001) was found of the best volumetric agreement with the final infarct, while Tmax > 5.6 seconds (sensitivity: 76.8%, specificity: 70.3%) performed most accurately in voxel-based analysis.
CONCLUSION: Among Chinese acute stroke patients, volume of Tmax >6 seconds may precisely target ischemic penumbra tissue as good as voxel-based analysis performed, albeit no concordant MRP parameter is found to accurately predict infarct core because reperfusion occurred within 24 h after thrombolysis fails to restrain the infarct growth.
