A common problem in arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion MRI is the relatively low spatial resolution and subsequently the partial volume effects. We evaluated a new deep learning-based super-resolution algorithm for solving that problem. The algorithm successively produced higher resolution ASL cerebral blood flow image from low resolution data, which even outperformed an existing super-resolution method.
