The method of regional arterial spin labeling allows to measure the cerebral perfusion of single feeding arteries. Selective positioning of the labeling slabs on the arteries of interest therefore must be accomplished. Manual selection of the slabs is operator-dependent. Here, a method is presented for automatic finding and positioning of the inversion slabs.
