A calibration method for quantitative BOLD fMRI based on hyperoxia.
The estimation of changes in CMR(O2) using functional MRI involves an essential calibration step using a vasoactive agent to induce an isometabolic change in CBF. This calibration procedure is performed most commonly using hypercapnia as the isometabolic stimulus. However, hypercapnia possesses a number of detrimental side effects. Here, a new method is presented using hyperoxia to perform the same calibration step. This procedure requires independent measurement of Pa(O2), the BOLD signal, a...Expand abstract
