Arterial spin labeling (ASL) provides easy-access non-invasive quantification of regional cerebral blood (CBF) but its accuracy is not established. The aim of the study was to compare simultaneous measurements of absolute CBF obtained by ASL MRI and 15O-H2O PET CBF measurements in healthy subjects using a hybrid PET/MR system. Simultaneous 15O-H2O PET and ASL MRI were performed in resting state, hypoperfusion and hyperperfusion. Overall highly significant positive and linear correlation of ASL MRI and H2O PET in gCBF was observed across all perfusion states, confirming the ability of ASL MRI to quantify gCBF in good agreement with PET.
