DSC-MRI Derived T 2 * Leakage Effect Depends on Structural Features of Extravascular Space

Purpose: In DSC-MRI studies, the leakage of contrast agent (CA) into the extravascular extracellular space (EES) creates magnetic susceptibility differences (Δχ) between cells and the EES, which can result in additional extravascular T2* effects well after the initial bolus of CA passes through the tissue. These effects have been clinically assessed using… CONTINUE READING
