The development of a method by Lassen and Ingvar [4] to measure regional brain blood flow has added a new dimension to the studies of the cerebral circulation. Lassen, Ingvar and their associates [5], and Glass and Harper [1] first used the isotope clearance method for measurements over the intact skull in man.
