In this work, we used arterial spin labeling to acquire 3D high resolution angiography with increased signal to noise ratio. A 3D turbo-FLASH sequence was modified by incorporating the in-plane slice-selective double inversion magnetization preparation. Arterial blood inflow time was determined experimentally and high resolution 3D MR angiography was obtained at three inversion times.
