Streamlined-qBOLD is applied to an exploratory cohort of acute stroke patients in a serial imaging study to map brain oxygen metabolism. Quantitative brain oxygenation parameters are demonstrated to vary between regions with different tissue outcomes and this imaging approach is shown to have the potential to refine the identification of the ischemic penumbra.
