1. Regarding Artery of Percheron Infarction

    Sir, Its with interest that I read the small and crisp description and medical images related to Artery of Percheron infarct.

    The diagnosis of this condition indeed is sometimes difficult and requires clinical suspicion accompanied by proper radiological imaging.

    What i would also like to highlight is the fact that its not only the imaging modality i.e MRI which is required,or the sequence DWI/ADC which is also important, the imaging machinery should also be optimal i.e a magnetic strength of at least 1.5 tesla or higher.

    I emphasize this point because many MRI machines in the Indian context are suboptimally designed to pick up these important but often small lesions and prescribing physicians often donot have the proper knowledge and thus fail to arrive at a proper diagnosis.

    Thanks and regards,

    Dr Deep Das Consultant Interventional Neurology Kolkata, West Bengal, India
