Abstract

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) imaging soon will be available as a routine clinical perfusion imaging sequence for a significant number of MR imaging scanners. The ASL perfusion technique offers information similar to that provided by conventional dynamic susceptibility sequences, but it does not require the use of an intravenous contrast agent, and the data can be quantified. The appearance of pathology is affected significantly by the ASL techniques used. Familiarity with the available sequence parameter options and the common appearances of pathology facilitates perfusion interpretation.
