With the emergence of novel targeted therapies, imaging techniques that assess tumor vascular support have gained credence for response assessment alongside standard response criteria. Computed tomography (CT) perfusion techniques that quantify regional tumor blood flow, blood volume, flow-extraction product, and permeability-surface area product through standard kinetic models are attractive, but the level of evidence for CT perfusion to be a truly mature biomarker remains insufficient… CONTINUE READING
