We have conducted an analyzed the data of MRI lesion localization of 100 patients: 30 were patients with recurrent strokes, 35 patients with first ischemic stroke; 35 patients with discirculatory encephalopathy of mixed origin. The data were obtained from 1¬1,5T MRI tomography. We evaluated the location of cerebral atrophy changes, lacunar infarctions, the nidi of acute stroke and the localization of postischemic lesions among the tested patients. We have discovered that with the progression of the disease overall cerebral changes progress significantly. The localization of lacunar infarcts significantly (p <0.05) follows the location of lesions of gliosis and leukoaraiosis. The frequency distribution of acute ischemic lesions corresponds to the location postishemic changes.
