The oxygen extraction fraction is of great clinical interest providing a biomarker for brain tissue viability and a parameter for the evaluation of diseases such as tumor, stroke, and Alzheimers disease. The analytical tissue model in the static dephasing regime has facilitated promising in-vivo results mapping hemodynamic parameters such as the OEF and the venous blood volume fraction separately using MRI. This work shows a comparison between the fit results using the full analytical model and the more frequently used asymptotic approximation in terms of accuracy and precision based on Monte-Carlo simulations and robustness in-vivo.
