Elucidating Dispersion Effects in Perfusion MRI by Means of Dispersion-Compliant Bases

Abstract : Dispersion effects in perfusion MRI data have a relevant influence on the residue function computed from deconvolution of the measured arterial and tissular concentration time-curves. Their characterization allows reliable estimation of hemody-namic parameters and can reveal pathological tissue conditions. However, the time-delay between the measured concentration time-curves is a confounding factor. We perform deconvolution by means of dispersion-compliant bases, separating the effects of dispersion and delay. In order to characterize dispersion, we introduce shape parameters, such as the dispersion time and index. We propose a new formulation for the dispersed residue function and perform in silico experiments that validate the reliability of our approach against the block-circulant Singular Value Decomposition. We successfully apply the approach to stroke MRI data and show that the calculated parameters are coherent with physiological considerations, highlighting the importance of dispersion as an effect to be measured rather than discarded.
