Blood oxygen level dependent imaging of cerebral mesostructure

Abstract:

In this thesis I investigate blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) MRI methods of imaging the cerebral blood volume (CBV), mean vessel radius and oxygen extraction fraction (OEF). Through the investigation of these individual techniques a new framework is proposed for the simultaneous measurement of all three parameters, providing a comprehensive assay of the cerebral mesostructure.

A new method for the segmentation of blood filled voxels from the sagittal sinus is presented. The impl...
