An automated method for determination of arterial input function (AIF) for rapid determination of cerebral perfusion with dynamic susceptibility contrast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was derived. In 100 patients, the automated method was used to create images of relative blood flow, relative cerebral blood volume, and mean transit time. In 20 patients, the voxel chosen with the automated AIF correlated with a large cerebral artery and exhibited less partial-volume averaging when compared… CONTINUE READING
