Cerebral Blood Flow

  • Jiro Suzuki


Research on the nature of brain infarction has proceeded using various approaches, including those of histopathology, biochemistry and electrophysiology. One of the most fundamental parameters in such research is cerebral blood flow (CBF)—which is an essential barometer for determining the level of brain ischemia.
