Cerebral blood volume

150 ml.

Quantitative measurement of cerebral blood volume (CBV, defined as ml blood in 100 ml brain) is useful for advancing our understanding of brain physiology and pathophysiology 1) 2).

Perfusion computed tomography (CT) is a technique that allows rapid qualitative and quantitative evaluation of cerebral perfusion by generating maps of cerebral blood flow (CBF), cerebral blood volume (CBV), and mean transit time (MTT).
