PURPOSE To use T2'-mapping together with Pulsed Arterial Spin Labeling (PASL) providing quantitative information of deoxygenation level and cerebral blood flow (CBF) in the cerebral gray matter to obtain simultaneous information about the cerebral oxygen metabolism and the resulting cerebral vasoreactivity under normoxic and hyperoxic conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve young, healthy volunteers underwent MRI under normoxic and hyperoxic conditions performing PASL and high-resolution… CONTINUE READING
