Early brain injury/ischemia is a recent therapeutic target of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) that contributes to triggering delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) [1]. However, little is known about the role of cerebral blood flow (CBF) and neurobehavioral profiles at acute stage on functional outcome of the rodent model to simulate clinical severity early after SAH. The present study demonstrated the feasibility of MRI-based CBF measurements using the continuous arterial spin labeling (CASL) perfusion images for precise grading of the severity in a murine model of endovascular perforation model of SAH.
