Abstract

In the last 15 years there has been a relative explosion in the number of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques and developments related to cerebral perfusion. Given the variety of perfusion methods available, it is often difficult to decide which technique would be best for a particular clinical question or patient. In this review article we discuss the more common techniques, review how they are performed, and summarize the optimal technique or techniques for a variety of clinical situations.
