For diagnoses and follow-up of cerebrovascular diseases the accurate evaluation of brain perfusion including temporal information of blood flow is essential. In this case report Drs. Panasci and Mendelsohn from Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, Smithtown, NY, USA demonstrate how this data can also be derived from non-contrast enhanced PWI measurements. By using syngo.ASL, they were able to evaluate a post procedure study following angioplasty and stenting of a right internal carotid artery and angioplasty of a right A1 segment.
