Mohammed Mahjoub, Mohamed Yousef, Shazaly Khojaly


Abstract: This study was carried out to assess the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) role in diagnosis of brain infarction among Sudanese at Khartoum, This study was done at Alzaiem Alazhari University-College of Graduate Studies and Omdurman military hospital and modern medical center, Khartoum, Sudan. This was a descriptive quantitative an observational cross-sectional study of 100 Sudanese patients admitting to all flowing hospitals for brain MRI scan, 50 female and male 50 their ages ranged between [18-80] years,. MRI studies were performed using 1.5 Tesla Toshiba whole body MRI machine. The results of this study revealed that the most common affected site of the lesions was left side, 5 patients [18-27] years, the mean size of brain infarction was [2.20 0.46] mm. In 4 patients [28-37] years, the mean size was [3.30 0.35] mm. In 14 patients [38-47] years, the mean size was [4.30 0.26]. In 19 patients [48-57] years, the mean size was [5.36 0.32] mm. In 29 patients [58-67] years the mean size was [6.24 0.30] mm. In 20 patients [68-77] years the mean size was [7.16 0.29] mm. and in 4 patients [78-87] years, the mean size was [7.97 0.12] mm. The present study concluded that there is a strong correlation between infarction size and age, as age increase the infarction size increase, the right side of the brain is more common site for infarction than the left one. . All four imaging sequence of MRI (T1, T2, FLAIR and DWI) have the same signal intensity for infarction appearance, the result of the study was in line with previous studies.
