BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:Although CT perfusion is a promising tool to support treatment decisions for patients with acute ischemic stroke, it still lacks a standardized method for CTP analysis. The purpose of this study was to assess the variability of the area of infarct core and penumbra as presented in summary maps produced by 2 different software packages.MATERIALS AND METHODS:Forty-one CTP image datasets of 26 consecutive patients who presented with acute ischemic stroke were retrospectively evaluated. Identical image datasets were analyzed by using 2 different commercially available CTP analysis software packages, each representing a mainstream of widely used algorithms: delay-sensitive and delay-insensitive. Bland-Altman analyses were performed to evaluate the level of agreement between the 2 methods in determining the area of infarct core and penumbra area in the summary maps.RESULTS:There was a statistically significant difference in infarct core area (-23.6 ± 25.6 cm(2)) and penumbra area (15.8 ± 25.3 cm(2)) between the 2 software packages. For all the areas presented in the summary maps, the Bland-Altman interval limit of agreement was larger than 100 cm(2).CONCLUSIONS:The infarct core and penumbra area of CTP summary maps generated by 2 commonly used software packages were significantly different, emphasizing the need for standardization and validation of CTP analysis before it can be applied to patient management in clinical practice.
