SPECT Measurements of Regional Cerebral Blood Flow, Blood Volume, and Hematocrit in Stroke
In the present study, single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) was used for the measurement of regional cerebral blood flow (CBF), blood volume (CBV), and cerebral hematocrit (Hct) in normal subjects and patients with occlusive cerebral vascular diseases. Using these three cerebral hemodynamic parameters, regional pathophysiology during the acute stages of cerebral infarction and transient ischemic attack (TIA) was investigated.
