PURPOSE To investigate the utility of an automated perfusion-weighted MRI (PWI) method for estimating cerebral blood flow (CBF) based on localized arterial input functions (AIFs) as compared to the standard method of manual global AIF selection, which is prone to deconvolution errors due to the effects of delay and dispersion of the contrast bolus.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral hemodynamic status has been reported to influence the occurrence and outcome of acute stroke. The purpose of this study was to assess hemodynamic compromise in symptomatic patients with severe occlusive disease of the carotid artery by the use of echo-planar perfusion imaging. METHODS Spin-echo echo-planar perfusion imaging(More)
PURPOSE To investigate a previously developed method for perfusion-weighted MRI (PWI) cerebral blood flow (CBF) estimation that uses local arterial input functions (AIFs) in stroke patients, and determine its ability to correct delay and/or dispersion (D/D) errors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Analysis was performed on dynamic susceptibility contrast data from(More)
To assess the feasibility and short-term effects of treating patients with subacute or chronic middle cerebral artery (M1) occlusion by stent-assisted mechanical recanalization. Six patients with cerebral arteries occlusion underwent surgery. Six cerebral arteries occlusion in 5 patients were successfully recanalized. On postoperative day 1, four patients'(More)
