While blood bolus dispersion has been shown to affect
cerebral ASL, this effect has not yet been adressed for
myocardial ASL. In this contribution, we employ
computational fluid dynamics simulations in a realistic
coronary artery model to evaluate the extent of
dispersion in myocardial ASL and its impact on resulting
myocardial blood flow values.
