Abstract

Techniques for the quantitative imaging assessment of cerebral blood flow are presented in a cat using 19F NMR imaging of trifluoromethane. The input function of the indicator was acquired noninvasively, while its uptake and clearance were followed in 2‐cc volume voxels from images acquired at 67 sintervals. A single compartment model yielded normal cerebral blood flow estimates. © 1991 Academic Press, Inc.
