Summary

A method for calculating tissue perfusion from dynamic computed tomography (CT) data is described. By applying this method to corresponding pixels of a series of images from a dynamic CT sequence, a map of tissue perfusion is obtained which can then be displayed using a colour scale. The technique combines quantifiable information about perfusion with good anatomical detail in a single image.
