This paper discusses the potential of Multivariate Curve Resolution (MCR) models to extract physiological dynamics behaviors from Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Magnetic Resonance (DCE-MR) Imaging prostate perfusion studies for cancer diagnosis. A relationship with biomarkers (¿hidden¿ parameters for assessing the possible existence of a tumor) from pharmacokinetic models is also studied.
