MTT map reveals very prolonged MTT in left frontoparietal region and diffuse prolonged MTT in left supratentorial region. The dark area in left frontoparietal corresponds to low CBV. Therefore low CBF - infarct. The orange area is prolonged MTT but this area has normal CBV. The CBF therefore is reduced. This is ischemic tissue which can be salvaged by thrombolysis.
