PurposePerfusion CT (PCT) measurements of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) have been proposed as a fast and easy method for identifying angiogenically active tumours. In this study, quantitative PCT rCBF measurements in patients with brain tumours were compared to the gold standard PET rCBF with 15O-labelled water (15O-H2O).MethodsOn the same day within a few hours, rCBF was measured in ten adult patients with treatment-naïve primary brain tumours, twice using 15O-H2O PET and once with PCT… CONTINUE READING
