Mild Stroke Study II
To determine the tracer kinetic modelling approach most suitable for assessing subtle BBB leakage using a data-driven approach, to determine its validity both in theory and experimentally and to obtain tracer kinetic parameters for normal-appearing tissues and lesions. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
