Regional Cerebral Blood Flow at Rest and During Functional Tests in Occlusive and Non-Occlusive Cerebrovascular Disease

  • O. B. Paulson

Abstract

This paper presents the results obtained by measuring the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in 2 groups of patients with cerebrovascular disease: One group with occlusion of the middle cerebral artery, and one group with apoplexy without angiographic signs of arterial occlusion. These results will be reported in more detail elsewhere [6, 7]. The results obtained in patients with transient ischemic attacks are reported separately at this symposium [8].
