A method for the investigation of myocardial perfusion
using Arterial Spin Labelling in conjunction with a
Look-Locker style readout is presented. The effect of
the order of the slice-selective and globally-selective
inversion pulses on the apparent T1 values is
investigated. Estimates of the Myocardial Blood Flow are
calculated for the six standard myocardial segments.
