A new multi-slice ASL technique is detailed and applied to the study of rat spinal cord at 9.4T. The quantification of the spinal cord blood flow was performed using a pre-saturation FAIR Q2TIPS ASL technique based on the use of adiabatic RF pulses with a reduced FOV. The averaged perfusion within the GM (95.14.6ml/100g/min) was higher than within the WM (39.73.2ml/100g/min).
