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 and B1 inhomogeneity. The aim of this study was to understand how inhomogeneous of the B0 and B1 at labeling position of pCASL and find the remedies of the pCASL measurement for the CAS patient.
