Cerebrovascular Reserve Imaging

Naomi Morita

To understand the hemodynamic changes due to a decrease in cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), and evaluation of cerebrovascular reserve (CVR) capacity in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is important to determine the risk of future ischemic events and in the selection and planning of the therapeutic interventions. 3 approaches (positron emission tomography, single photon emission computed tomography and MRI) can be used in the evaluation of CVR. We will present the basic concept to measure CVR in patients with CVD combined by nuclear medicine imaging and introduce the possibility of MRI application in measuring CVR.
