The role of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in the assessment of cerebrovascular disorders has been challenged by its unrewarding clinical revenue. This difference between the technical difficulties and the clinical benefits must be acknowledged fully and depends on the fact that measurement of the rCBF may be of value in the diagnosis of cerebrovascular accidents, but if not correlated with functional conditions of the tissue affected is not of value in judging the clinical course and prognosis.
