This shows an MRI from someone who has had an acute right middle cerebral artery infarction. The image on the left is a diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI). The area in white shows the acute infarction. The image on the right shows the ADC map corresponding to the same image. Since the area which is bright on DWI is dark on the ADC, we can conclude that this infarction is acute.
