Figure 2: Evolution of gliotic scar after ischemic stroke. (a) CT without contrast 17 months after ischemic stroke, showing a gliotic scar. (b) MRI FLAIR sequence 17 months after ischemic stroke, showing gliotic scar within the previously infarcted region. (c) CT without contrast two years after ischemic stroke, showing a dense, cystic area in the right frontal, temporal, and parietal lobes, corresponding to the region of the prior infarct. (d) MRI T1 sequence after gadolinium contrast two years after ischemic stroke, showing contrast-enhancing, necrotic mass in the previously infarcted region.
