We present an optimized radial k-space short TE phase contract flow measurement sequence incorporating inversion of alternate slice-selection and flow-encoding gradients, with an optimized three pulse gradient profile to de-couple VENC from slice thickness. Also, correction of gradient timing error during slice selection led to improved robustness with in-plane slice shifts.
