Hemodynamic investigation in patients with stroke to quantify blood flow rate

Takeaway

  • A four-dimensional phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (4D PCMRI) technique was used to map multiple cerebral arteries simultaneously in patients with carotid stenosis allowing hemodynamic disturbances to be studied.

Why this matters

    Less time consuming, noninvasive imaging techniques will provide information about intracerebral blood flow rates (BFR) in carotid stenosis.
