The purpose of this study was to compare the results of perfusion computed tomography (PCT) with those of 15O2/H2 15O positron emission tomography (PET) in a subset of Carotid Occlusion Surgery Study (COSS) patients. Six patients enrolled in the COSS underwent a standard-of-care PCT in addition to the 15O2/H2 15O PET study used for selection for extracranial–intracranial bypass surgery. PCT and PET studies were coregistered and then processed separately by different radiologists. Relative… CONTINUE READING
