Knowledge of CBF in neonates or infants may provide valuable information
in many pathological conditions. When applied to very young children, CBF
mapping using arterial-spin-labeling (ASL) MRI suffers from low SNR and poor
quantification, whereas phase-contrast (PC) MRI may provide reliable estimation
of global CBF. Therefore, this study aim to 1) provide a set of age-specific PC-MRI
protocols for CBF quantification in children under 1.5 years old; 2) establish
typical arterial flow velocity in children at this age which could guide future
ASL efforts in labeling pulse optimization; 3) report how CBF changes during this
early stage of life.
