Continuous arterial spin labeling perfusion magnetic resonance imaging (CASL-pMRI) uses magnetically labeled arterial blood water as a tracer to obtain quantifiable measurements of cerebral blood flow (CBF) (mL/100 g-1/min-1). CASL-pMRI was used to assess CBF changes in major vascular distributions in patients (n = 10) prior to and 3 months after carotid endarterectomy (CEA). No significant change in the global baseline CBF before and after CEA was observed in the group as a whole (P = .81). In… CONTINUE READING
