Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is a non-contrast method for measuring tissue perfusion, and can be applied to the measurement of myocardial blood flow and myocardial perfusion reserve. Current cardiac ASL methods predominantly use balanced steady state free precession (bSSFP) imaging. In this work, we revisit one of the original cardiac ASL imaging schemes, single-shot EPI (Poncelet et al., MRM 1999), and experimentally demonstrate its potential advantages and its current limitations at 3T.
