Pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL) has been recently used for investigating cerebral hemodynamic change on the patient receiving carotid artery stenting (CAS) because it permits repeated measurement of absolute cerebral blood flow in a short interval without MR contrast agent or radioactive material. However, labeling efficiency of pCASL has been proved to be dependent on B0 inhomogeneity. Labeling position may need to be carefully applied after CAS. The aim of this study was to experimentally determine the optimal labeling position for pCASL with minimal frequency shift caused by stent in exploring cerebral perfusion in the patient with CAS treatment.
