The aim of this study is to quantify relative metabolic changes using hyperoxic calibrated BOLD/ASL fMRI in a hypermetabolic swine model. Metabolic changes using this large animal model were previously studied by our group using gas that is isotopically-enriched with 17O2. We sought to cross-validate these measurements with hyperoxic dHb dilution methods of relative metabolism and to compare the results of hyperoxia and hypercapnia calibration methods using this animal model.
