Abstract: The determination of brain perfusion is an important issue for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases. We designed a human-sized dynamic flow phantom mimicking the perfusion properties of the brain and used the human-sized MPI head scanner to acquire data from dynamic bolus injection experiments. A stroke was simulated by occluding one of the feeding hoses. We derived perfusion parameter maps from these data and were able to detect the simulated stroke.
