Automated method for generating the arterial input function on perfusion-weighted MR imaging: validation in patients with stroke.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The choice of arterial input function (AIF) can have a profound effect on the blood flow maps generated on perfusion-weighted MR imaging (PWI). Automation of this process could substantially reduce operator dependency, increase consistency, and accelerate PWI analysis. We created an automated AIF identification program (auto-AIF) and… (More)
