|Perfusion CT: A Pictorial Review from Head to Prostate|
An increasing number of vascular-modulating drugs are used in the treatment of cancers, which in turn increase demand for noninvasive methods of assessing tumor vascularity in vivo.
Perfusion CT is a new technology that allows measurement of tumor vascular physiology .
Apart from being noninvasive and fast, it can be repeated at regular intervals to assess tumor response to antiangiogenic therapy.
Here many clinical applications of perfusion CT using 64 slice MDCT scanner are presented.
