Clinico-topographic correlation of small vertebrobasilar infarct using magnetic resonance imaging.
Neurological, CT and high-field (1.5T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data were correlated in 6 patients previously clinically diagnosed as having suffered small vertebrobasilar infarct. MRI demonstrated infarcts in areas where CT was nearly always negative. MRI allowed very precise clinico-topographic correlations and appears to be the preferred imaging technique in vertebrobasilar infarcts.
