The study investigates TrueFISP readout for FAIR either as standard inversion recovery (IR) or as Look-Locker (LL) inversion recovery. These two methods are compared to EPI readout as implemented by Bruker. The aim was to show the improved image quality using TrueFISP and to evaluate the alternatives standard IR and LL. For FAIR-TrueFISP an in-house written method was created. The method was tested on a group of C57BL/6 mice at the field strength of 9.4 T. The results show cerebral blood flow maps with less distortion than EPI and the values found are in agreement with the literature.
