Objectives are to enhance the PHVS visibility in SWI, quantify stroke penumbra from it and calculate the mismatch ratio between PHVS(SWI) and DWI. For algorithm performance evaluation, 3D non-contrast pCASL as a gold standard was used to calculate true mismatch ratio with DWI. The proposed approach demonstrates high correlation between the two mismatch ratios, suggesting that PHVS and SWI based penumbra quantification has the potential to be used as an alternative for perfusion based methods. If mismatch ratio can accurately be produced from PHVS SWI, it could potentially reduce the scan time for acute stroke.
