Cerebral blood volume (CBV) is a hemodynamic correlate of oxygen metabolism and changes due to neuronal activity. CBV alteration may precede other hemodynamic correlates and provide an early indication of hemodynamic impairment. CBV can be easily quantified using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); moreover, CBV MRI has a strong point of high resolution compared to other neuroimaging modalities. The early and accurate assessments of cerebral metabolism and the brain map with the high resolution of CBV MRI enable advanced neurorehabilitation examinations in a neuroimaging study.
