To quantitatively investigate the regional perfusion characteristics of the pituitary gland by DCE MR imaging in patients with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency (IGHD). Brix model was applied and analyzed on dynamic data. We found multiple perfusion parameters will be helpful to investigate this non-BBB area.
