Evaluation of parotid blood flow (PBF) may provide an insight into the pathophysiology of parotid diseases. We evaluated and compared the blood flow of normal parotid glands in six volunteers using 2D-echo-planar (EP) and 3D-turbo-spin-echo (TSE) pseudo-continuous ASL (pCASL) sequences. Visual assessment indicated that 3D-TSE pCASL maps were significantly better for delineating normal parotid glands. 3D-TSE pCASL showed larger PBF values than 2D-EP pCASL. Fewer measurement errors were observed in 3D-TSE pCASL data. We concluded that 3D-TSE pCASL is more suitable for the evaluation of PBF than 2D-EP pCASL.
