Perfusion analysis computes blood flow parameters (blood volume, blood flow, and mean transit time) from the observed flow of a contrast agent passing through the patient's vascular system. Perfusion deconvolution has been widely accepted as the principal numerical tool for perfusion analysis, and is used routinely in clinical applications. The extensive use of perfusion in clinical decision-making makes numerical stability and robustness of perfusion computations vital for accurate diagnostics… CONTINUE READING
