Vessel encoded pseudo-continuous ASL allows quantitative characterization of vascular supply to the human brain. In this work, we discuss the application of vessel encoded pseudo-continuous ASL to resolve perfusion changes that occur in response to manual compression of the common carotid artery in healthy human subjects. These data may provide insight into the development of collateral routes of circulation following acute alterations in blood flow.
