We compared 3
versions of Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL) available ( single-TI 3D-PASL,
multi-TI 3D-PASL and 2D-pCASL) on 3T Siemens MRI scanner Skyra in 10 normal healthy adults with normal body
mass index (BMI) at 3 different time points (baseline, 1 week later, 2 to 3
month later). There was good
replicability of all 3 ASL techniques (correlation coefficients range from 0.55
to 0.77). Values acquired with these ASL techniques agree with the published
normal range of cerebral blood flow values in adults. There is no significant difference in the CBF
obtained with single-TI 3D-PASL, multi-TI 3D-PASL and 2D-pCASL.
