Rapid sequence computed tomography (CT) scanning has many potential applications in studying intracranial physiologic events. However, visual inspection of these rapid sequence scans fails to extract the large amount of information inherent in the digital data. The concept of corrected mean transit time applied to rapid sequence scans after intravenous bolus injection of contrast material provides quantitative data on relative hemispheric flow. Use of histogram-based areas of interest permits… CONTINUE READING
