Recently we have proposed 3D volumetric non -contrast time -resolved MRA technique termed Contrast inherent inflow enhanced multi phase angiography combining multiple phases pseudo -continuous arterial spin labeling (CINEMA -pCASL). CINEMA-pCASL was developed as a technique that enables diachronic observation of hemodynamic as in DSA and extensive 3D volume acquisition with the whole brain as a target. We present a preliminary study of CINEMA-pCASL sequence and discuss its clinical relevance.
