Malignant perfusion profile in an 82-year-old with a right MCA syndrome. MRA showing a right M1 segment MCA occlusion (a). GRE image demonstrates blooming from thrombus at the site of occlusion (b, arrow). DWI image demonstrates a moderate-sized ischemic core (c), which is colorized on the perfusion map (pink, d). The ischemic penumbra is larger than the ischemic core (green, e) but in this instance is notable for a large volume of Tmax > 10s consistent with a malignant perfusion profile (f)
