The First human face allograft was made in 2005. Transplantation consisted in part of revascularization of facial arteries and veins. This investigation aims to develop a dedicated PC-MRI protocol to assess arterial and venous flow of the face. Mean arterial and venous flows from a control adult group were reconstructed along the cardiac cycle. PC-MRI shows that the Transplantation women vascular flows were functional both in the venous and arterial vessels of her face. PC-MRI protocol has shown its ability to measure arterial and venous flow of the face.
