Four dimensional (4D) MR Angiography with Pseudo-Continuous Arterial Spin Labeling (pCASL) combined with CENTRA-Keyhole and View-sharing (4D-PACK) has demonstrated high flow visualization ability in clinical use. In this study, we combined Superselective-pCASL with 4D-PACK (SS-4D-PACK) and investigated artery-selective visualization ability in SS-4D-PACK through comparison with contrast inherent inflow enhanced multi-phase angiography combining vessel-selective arterial spin labeling technique (CINEMA-Select). SS-4D-PACK showed higher vessel selectivity and vessel visualization in peripheral artery compared with CINEMA-Select.
