The article presents an algorithm for the automatic detection of the acute stroke zone on the MRI. To searching for a zone of interest used a combination of the tomograms of the brain of various types. After determining the coordinates and boundaries of the pathological signal field on the image obtained by subtracting images T1 and Flair, these coordinates are automatically transferred to the diffusion-weighted images of type b-1000, obtained from the same patient with the same isocenter coordinates. Next, calculated the brightness of the selected area on the diffusion-weighted images. If the brightness value more than a certain threshold value, it is concluded that the abnormal region is an acute ischemic stroke. If the brightness is below a threshold value, it is said from the fact that the region is not an acute ischemic stroke
