A single-shot 3D arterial spin labeling (ASL) sequence has been developed and optimized for breast cancer imaging. In a case study, its ability to measure the perfusion of a tumor without contrast agents is demonstrated. The resulting ASL perfusion-weighted image of the tumor shows high correspondence with the subtraction image of the contrast-enhanced measurement.
