Abstract: Objective To evaluate the diagnostic agreement of 3D pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling (3D-pCASL) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose and 11C-Methionine positron emission tomography-computed tomography(PET/CT) for brain disorders. Method 3D-pCASL and PET/CT were performed on 7 patients with different brain disorders,and the diagnostic agreement was assessed by visual observation. Results Four tumor lesions presented hyperperfusion on 3D-pCASL,and hypermetabolism on PET/CT. One demyelinated lesion and one metabolic lesion showed hyperperfusion on 3D-pCASL,and one infected lesion showed hypoperfusion on 3D-pCASL;all these three lesions showed hypermetabolism on PET/CT. Conclusion 3D-pCASL can non-invasively evaluate the perfusion state of the brain disorder in vivo and have a good dignostic consistency with PET/CT.

Key words: arterial spin labeling, perfusion weighted imaging, positron emission tomography-computed tomography
