These images had poor resolution and could be used only during the time of blood-brain barrier breakdown, typically within the first 6 weeks after stroke onset, during which time aphasic conditions are rarely stable. The scans did not allow the boundaries of lesions to be visualized, but general areas of abnormality could be located on an anterior-posterior axis relative to a rough outline of a lateral view of the brain. This work provided the first radiologic confirmation of Wernicke's distinction between fluent "sensory" aphasia associated with posterior left hemisphere lesions and nonfluent "expressive" aphasia associated with anterior lesions.
