Brain stenotic diseases such as moyamoya disease (MMD)
are characterized by diminished cerebrovascular reserve.
In this work, we proposed a one-stop-shop method for
hemodynamic imaging in cerebrovascular diseases, in
which venous cerebral blood volume (vCBV) and
cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR), as well as a response
time (RT) map reflecting kinetic properties are obtained
in a single scan of about 9 minutes without need for
radiation exposure of administration of exogenous
contrast agents. We showed that MMD patients have
diminished vasodilatory function while their baseline
vCBV was intact. This method may be a practical and
valuable method in cerebrovascular diseases.
