abstract

  • Abnormal oxygen extraction fraction remains a powerful predictor of stroke in carotid stenosis or occlusion and is a valuable reference standard to compare and validate MR imaging-based measures of brain oxygen metabolism. However, there is a need for further evaluation of oxygen extraction fraction testing in patients with high-grade but asymptomatic carotid disease.
