We propose a steady-pulsed labeling approach for improving sensitivity of myocardial perfusion ASL in humans based on a technique recently validated in mice. Blood was labeled in the aorta at a specific timepoint in the cardiac cycle in a series of SSFP single-shot images. The sequence was tested on
