Abstract

We illustrate the fundamental theoretical principles of arterial spin-labeling (ASL) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and show a system that employs the second version of quantitative imaging of perfusion using a single subtraction (Q2TIPS) to quantify cerebral blood flow (CBF). We also discuss the effects of the parameters used in Q2TIPS on CBF values as measured with ASL-MRI.
