Diagnosis: Acute left MCA infarct - MRIMRI of the brain demonstrates increased T2 (top left) and FLAIR (top right) signal in the left MCA territory. Diffusion weighted images (DWI, bottom left) and correlative ADC maps (bottom right) show restricted diffusion in that territory. Increased T2 signal on DWI could represent “T2 shine through” and has to be confirmed by ADC maps. Low signal on ADC map confirms restricted diffusion (compatible with infarct).
