Abstract

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is a noninvasive magnetic resonance (MR) perfusion imaging technique that utilizes magnetically labeled blood as an intrinsic tracer [1, 11, 12]. ASL permits quantitative measurement of cerebral perfusion, [8, 9] and because it requires neither injection of contrast medium nor radiation exposure, the technique allows repetitive acquisitions with independent labeling of the different cerebral arteries to image regional perfusion and thereby provide topographic perfusion maps of each vascular territory[3, 5, 7, 10].
