Finally we conclude that perfusion CT is useful for quantitative analysis of perfusion changes in many ischemic and tumoral pathologies.
Therefore perfusion CT tool may be helpful in oncology, providing a higher degree of diagnosis security, differentiation in malignancy and for the therapeutical follow-up
One of the important applications of this technique is the indication of a highly perfused area, which could be used to guide biopsy to the site of the most active tumour, reducing the chance of sampling error.
In future, pre and post treatment tumor response can be monitored by using perfusion imaging
