Unenhanced time-resolved 4D dynamic MRA (dMRA) has been recently introduced by combining arterial spin tagging with a segmented multiphase TrueFISP readout. The present study explored the feasibility for applying dynamic radial sampling with golden angle view increment in a TrueFISP based spin tagging sequence to reduce the total scan time by nearly 10 fold. The reconstructed dMRA images demonstrated the dynamic filling of the Circle of Willis and main branches, albeit with a small degree of temporal smoothing.
