Multi-phase pcASL has been proposed as a means to achieve accurate perfusion quantification that is robust to imperfect shim in the labelling plane. There exists a previously unrecognised bias in the estimation process that is a function of noise on the data. In this work this boas is addressed, exploiting information common to voxels containing tissue fed by the same artery, identified using clustering methods.
