O'Donoghue surmises that the change in whole brain volume after treatment may be an effect of OSA or that CPAP treatment may have reversed the OSA-induced changes in the cerebral blood volume or in the whole brain water content.
[FIGURE 4 OMITTED] The commercial software application of a deconvolution mathematical model to the contrast time-concentration curves, performed on an offline workstation in as little as 5 minutes, allows the creation of color perfusion maps that are based on the central volume principal: cerebral blood flow (CBF) = cerebral blood volume (CBV)/mean transit time (MTT).
Elevated vascular permeability because of a damaged blood-brain barrier after ischemic stroke can be quantified with perfusion computed tomography (CT), a technique that rapidly evaluates cerebral perfusion by generating maps of cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood volume, and mean transit time.
