The acquisition of arterial and venous blood flow to the cranium as well as flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the spinal canal are the main input parameters for modeling cerebrospinal dynamics. The acquisition of all three components requires high sensitivity to a large range of velocities. This work aimed at simultaneous measurement of arterial, venous and CSF flow in the neck using a multi-point variable-density velocity encoded 3D sequence with spatiotemporal undersampling.
