A method for the investigation of myocardial perfusion using Arterial Spin Labelling in conjunction with a Look-Locker style readout is presented. The effect of the order of the slice-selective and globally-selective inversion pulses on the apparent T1 values is investigated. Estimates of the Myocardial Blood Flow are calculated for the six standard myocardial segments.
