Abstract

Quantitative imaging contrast is evaluated which allows the selective measurement of the blood oxygenation state during cerebral ischemia within a multiparametric imaging study on rats. In a first step, the ambiguities arising in T2/*-weighted images due to T2/* heterogeneity are eliminated by calculating T2/* maps. Then, 1/T'2 maps are calculated according to 1/T'2 = 1/T2/* - 1/T2 to eliminate nonsusceptibility-induced changes of 1/T2/* after the induction of stroke. This is of particular importance in the presence of vasogenic edema. The changes Δ(1/T'2) after the onset of ischemia selectively quantify the variations of the deoxyhemoglobin content during the development of the infarct. The presented results are not available from conventionally recorded parameters of a stroke study and, together with perfusion-weighted images, form a powerful combination to analyze the oxygen consumption and the metabolism of the tissue.
