Abstract
The fractional volume of capillary blood, i.e. the perfusion fraction f, was measured with the aid of an echo-planar imaging protocol originally designed for the measurement of water diffusion. In healthy volunteers, reasonable f values were obtained. In patients with cerebral ischaemic stroke, a marked decrease in the f value was seen in the infarcted region as compared with corresponding values in the contralateral hemisphere. We suggest that perfusion-fraction measurements may add to the diagnostic value of water-mobility examinations in patients with ischaemic disease.
