Author information

Institut für Flugmedizin, Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Luft- und Köln, Germany.


A new method is presented for the quantitative determination of regional blood volumes in vivo. It is based on rapid quantitative T1 mapping by Snapshot FLASH MRI combined with the injection of an intravascular MR contrast agent. Regional blood volumes in four different tissues of the rat (skeletal muscle, heart, liver, kidney) were determined in an in vivo experiment.
