PURPOSE: To evaluate two dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) quantification methods in symptomatic carotid artery disease patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) surgery by comparing methods directly and assessing the reliability of each method in the hemisphere contralateral to surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Absolute cerebral blood flow (CBF) and volume (CBV) was calculated in putamen and sensorimotor gray matter of 17 patients using two methods: 1) The Bookend method that scale...Expand abstract
