    Course Description
    Perfusion computed tomography (CT) is a timely, simple, and cost-effective means to quantify hemodynamic conditions in microscopic blood vessels. The information generated by perfusion CT maps has proven to be beneficial in clinical decision-making, particularly in acute triage settings, in which the rapid and accurate characterization of patients’ cerebrovascular health status is essential. The approach is now a preferred neuroimaging mode in a number of clinical situations, including primary cerebral-perfusion disorders, such as ischemic stroke, but also in head trauma and brain cancer. Recent advances in technology have improved the resolution and coverage of perfusion CT maps while reducing radiation exposure. However, issues surrounding standardization and reproducibility remain to be addressed.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • Explain the technical considerations raised in the collection and processing of computed tomography (CT) perfusion data.
    • Summarize the clinical settings in which cerebral CT perfusion provides essential diagnostic information.
    • Appraise the controversies and limitations surrounding the accuracy and reproducibility of cerebral CT perfusion imaging.
