This investigation analyzed 22 xenon CT cerebral blood flow (CBF) studies from 18 severely head-injured patients (Glasgow motor score < 6) who underwent xenon CT scanning while brain tissue oxygen tension (PbtO2) was being monitored. CBF was determined both in a localized region of interest around the actual or estimated location of the tip of the PbtO2 probe and in the entire corresponding CT slice. Linear regression analysis was used to examine the relationship between these CBF measurements… CONTINUE READING
