This study proposes a new method for the pixel-by-pixel quantification of regional CBF (rCBF) with positron emission tomography and H(15)(2)O by using a reference tissue region. No arterial blood is required. Simulation studies revealed that the calculation of rCBF was fairly stable provided that the frame time was relatively short compared with total scan(More)
