Arterial Spin Labelling shows great promise for perfusion measurements, however its clinical adoption is precluded by the lack of a standardised phantom to validate such measurements. A perfusion phantom specially designed and built for optimal use with clinical ASL sequences is presented, alongside characterisation results. Measurements of perfusion rate and arterial transit time were made using a multi-TI FAIR PASL sequence. Results indicate the phantom has good stability, high SNR and exhibits perfusion rates and arterial transit times that are comparable with human physiology.
