Temporal changes in vascular function following an increase in core body temperature in a patient with SCCHN (outlined in white). The panel of images
represent parametric (a) blood volume (BV), (b) blood flow (BF) and (c) permeability surface (PS) maps calculated from perfusion CT scans at pre-heating (left), immediately
post-heating (middle) and 5 days post-heating (right). Colour scale illustrates the increase in tumour BV, BF, and PS post-heat treatment.
