Abstract

PURPOSE: To determine contrast enhancement after cerebral infarction at T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with delayed, gadolinium- enhanced, and magnetization transfer (MT) techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients aged 40-81 years with recent infarctions ( .05). Initial and delayed standard-dose MT images were ranked lowest (P <.01) and were not distinguishable from each other. CONCLUSION: MT saturation and high-dose gadoteridol individually and synergistically improve the depiction of contrast enhancement.
