When cardiac arrest occurs, the blood to the brain stops, they would have started recussitation measures asap. Still, hypoxic injury to the brain can occur which can be seen in Mri. This is in general for any cardiac arrest. Need to know the clinical condition  and do a Mri to look for hypoxic injury.
