Acute MCA Infarct

Unenhanced CT of the 93 yrs old patient showing extensive acute right Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA) infarct. At first look infarct may not seem obvious. However note decreased amount of sulci that is most striking compared to the normal left side in this patient with normal for age cortical atrophy. Note decreased attenuation of the MCA territory on the right side as well as diminished delineation of the grey-white matter differentiation.
