From: Case report of MR perfusion imaging in Sinking Skin Flap Syndrome: growing evidence for hemodynamic impairment

Figure 1

MR-perfusion maps and anatomy before (A-D) and after (E-F) cranioplastic repair of a patient with the "sinking skin flap syndrome" with delayed motor deficits. A focal area of hypoperfusion (reduced blood flow and blood volume, and increased mean transit time) is observed in the right parietal cortex (A-C) beneath the skin flap. After cranioplasty, brain perfusion maps show no longer show a significant perfusion deficit.
