Abstract

Purpose: Venous oxygenation (Yv) is an important index of brain physiology and may be indicative of brain diseases. A T2-relaxation-under-spin-tagging (TRUST) MRI technique was recently developed to measure Yv. A multisite evaluation of this technique would be an important step toward broader availability and potential clinical utilizations of Yv measures. Methods: TRUST MRI was performed on a total of 250 healthy subjects, 125 from the developer's site and 25 each from five other sites. All sites were equipped with a 3 Tesla (T) MRI of the same vendor. The estimated Yv and the standard error (SE) of the estimation εYv were compared across sites. Results: The averaged Yv and εYv across six sites were 61.1%±1.4% and 1.3%±0.2%, respectively. Multivariate regression analysis showed that the estimated Yv was dependent on age (P=0.009) but not on performance site. In contrast, the SE of the Yv estimation was site-dependent (P=0.024) but was less than 1.5%. Further analysis revealed that εYv was positively associated with the amount of subject motion (P<0.001) but negatively associated with blood signal intensity (P<0.001). Conclusion: This work suggests that TRUST MRI can yield equivalent results of Yv estimation across different sites.
