Control - Tag µ CBF


Goal: Accurately measure dynamic CBF response to neural activity

From C. Iadecola 2004


Example:

Perfusion and BOLD in primary and supplementary motor cortex.

Measured with PICORE QII with dual-echo spiral readout.

Obata et al. 2004


Asl data processing
ASL Data Processing

  • CBF = Control - Tag

  • An estimate of the CBF time series is formed from a filtered subtraction of Control and Tag images.

  • Use of subtraction makes CBF signal more insensitive to low-frequency drifts and 1/f noise.

Summary
Summary

  • For block designs with narrow spectrum, use surround subtraction or sinc subtraction

  • For randomized designs with broad spectrum, use pair-wise subtraction.

  • To minimize noise autocorrelation use pair-wise or surround subtraction.

  • General framework can be used to design other optimal filters.
