Tracking Vascular Supply Using Bolus Tracking MRI
Christensen S, Ostergaard L, Calamante F, Manka C
Bolus tracking studies are widely used in settings of acute stroke. We propose a new application of Bolus Tracking that will estimate the likely supply routes of blood for a given voxel. We outline the theoretical background and illustrate the method in 2 acute stroke cases. Results show promise that information on collateral supply, vascular territories and density of supplying vessels can be derived from this method.
