Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique for measuring cerebral blood flow (CBF). Here, we present data on the reproducibility of measuring CBF with time-encoded multi post-labeling delay (PLD) pseudo-continuous ASL (pCASL) in a healthy volunteer compared to a flow phantom. This work shows the potential of using a flow phantom to assess the reproducibility of quantified CBF with ASL.
