The lenticulostriate arteries are involved in small vessel disease and their blood flow velocity and pulsatility has been measured with 7T 2D Qflow. To make this measurement more widely available we aimed to translate it to 3T by increasing blood SNR with a contrast agent. In this study we show that the 2D Qflow acquisition can measure blood flow velocity and its pulsatility in lenticulostriate arteries at 3T, even without the use of a contrast agent.
