Measurement of Absolute Cerebral Blood Volume using Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Our research is focused on developing, optimizing and validating an MRI approach to estimate the absolute CBV and/ or scBV in humans.
We will be using pre- and post-contrast VASO images and is basing those image patterns on the T1-shortening effect of the Gd-DTPA (gadolinium complex of diethylenetriamine pentaacedtic acid) contrast agent.
