  • Slide 1
  • Measurement of liver blood flow using [ 15 O]H 2 O and PET Literature review 7 th Modelling Workshop in Turku PET Centre, 20 th October 2005 Turku PET Centre 2005
  • Slide 2
  • Why measuring hepatic blood flow ? Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most frequent malignant tumor of the liver. Liver metastase play a role in the morbidity and mortality associated with this cancer Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most frequent malignant tumor of the liver. Liver metastase play a role in the morbidity and mortality associated with this cancer Metastatic tumor of liver: Multiple liver nodules are consistent with metastases ( www.pathology.vcu.edu/education/dental2/lab4.html). www.pathology.vcu.edu/education/dental2/lab4.html Non-invasive measurement of regional blood flow within the liver is of particular clinical interest, since changes in the tumors blood flow have been recognized as an important aspect for the assessment of treatment response of hepatic cancers

  • Many methods exist : classified in direct and indirect methods 1) Direct methods can measure hepatic blood flow but they are invasive (exposure, cannulation) -Microsphere method -Plethysmography method -Electromagnetic 2) Indirect methods can be invasive or non-invasive : -Doppler ultrasonography (operator dependant, reproducibility) -Dynamic computed tomography -Dilution techniques -Radiolabelled methods Positron emission tomography with [ 15 O]H 2 O tracer Positron emission tomography with [ 15 O] H 2 O tracer
  • Slide 4
  • PET using an intravenous bolus injection of [ 15 O] H 2 O tracer permit non invasive measurement of hepatic blood flow and separate measurement of arterial and portal blood flow Curves obtained after tracer injection ROI for the liver segments (Taniguchi et al, 1999)
  • Slide 5
  • Kety-Schmidt model (Kety & Schmidt, 1948) This model is applicable to the study of blood flow in various organs (brain, heart) but, also in liver with modifications to reflect unique delivery environment of liver : incorporation of two separate input functions (dual-input Kety schmidt model) or using a combined input function. But the dual-input is mostly used (Taniguchi et al, 1993, 1996, Ziegler et al 1996, Munk et al 2003)
  • Slide 6
  • Liver has dual blood supply : Hepatic artery (arterial blood from heart) Portal vein (venous blood) The compartmental model has to account to this two supply Scheme for general model
  • Slide 7
  • Dual-input model Liver (C L ) Hepatic artery (C A ) Portal vein (C p ) F a /V L F P /V L F a + F P /V L
  • Slide 8
  • (portal organ ) (C p ) Liver (C L ) Hepatic artery (C A ) artery (C A ) F a /V L F P /V L F a + F P /V L Single-input model
  • Slide 9
  • Model parameter Fa : arterial blood flow Fa : arterial blood flow Fp : portal veinous blood flow Fp : portal veinous blood flow Fa + Fp = total hepatic blood flow Fa + Fp = total hepatic blood flow C A : Tracer concentration in arterial blood C A : Tracer concentration in arterial blood C p : Tracer concentration in portal vein C p : Tracer concentration in portal vein C L : Tracer concentration in liver C L : Tracer concentration in liver V L : tracer volume of distribution in liver V L : tracer volume of distribution in liver
  • Slide 10
  • The ordinary differential equation describing the tracer dynamics And C L (t=0) = 0 Assuming transport of tracer from vessel into tissue compartment is fast compared to delivery by arterial and portal-venous blood flows : tracer dynamics one-tissue compartment model with 2 different input functions. Dual input model : Single input model :

  • Method of time delay correction (taniguchi et al, 1999) Method of time delay correction. The time delay ( t) between sample site and portal organ is calculated using nonlinear regression analysis. And the hepatic blood flow is calculated using the new input function that incorporated t. Data are also corrected for dispersion
  • Slide 12
  • For solving model we have to had two delay parameter Ta and Tp which represent the transit time from the aorta and the portal vein regions to the liver respectively : k 1a = F a /V L k 1p =F p /V L k 2 = F a +F p /V L
  • Slide 13
  • A priori identifiability (Becker et al, 2005) Investigation on the a priori identifiability of the 3 paramater F a, F p and V L Results indicate that the full identifiability of the model depends on the form of the portal-venous input function (c p (t)) which is assumed to be a sum of m exponentials convolved with the arterial input function (c a (t)). When m 2, all 3-model parameters are uniquely identifiable For m = 1 identifiability of F p fails if c p (t) coincides with tissue concentration Ideally vascular input functions based on ROI derived from aorta and portal vein lead to truly measurement of blood flow with better identifiability

  • Example of results (Taniguchi, 1999)
  • Slide 15
  • Conclusion Liver perfusion can be studied with PET [ 15 O]H 2 O and compartmental modelling. Many articles this method combined with a dual-input one compartment model is a reproducible method that provides perfusion values. Arterial and portal-venous perfusion can be determined separately. Despite promising reports, this technique is limited by the low spatial and temporal resolution
