It has been shown that the quantification of blood flow velocities through the use of bipolar gradients is possible within the MRF framework, called flow-MRF. In this work, we investigate four different flow encoding patterns for flow-MRF and analyze their impact on flow quantification. Finally we present an optimized pattern.
