In this work, we compared perfusion maps obtained with
resting-state BOLD fMRI (no contrast agent used) to
perfusion maps obtained with Dynamic Susceptibility
Contrast (Gadolinium contrast agent) in 20 patients with
cerebrovascular diseases. We also derived connectivity
maps from the same data and analyzed the influence of
time delays on the results.
