Pseudo-continuous Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) (pCASL)
is emerging as a method of choice for the non-invasive
measurement of tissue perfusion in research and clinical
practice. It is not clear, what the effect of imperfect
angulation and mis-placement will have on the labeling
efficiency and consequently, on CBF estimation.
Therefore this work aims to address this question by
simulation and in vivo experiment and quantitatively
assess the effect of the angulation of the labeling
plane on pCASL labeling efficiency.
