Ultra-high field allows ASL to achieve higher spatial resolution due to increased SNR and prolonged T1 relaxation. We present a single-shot 3D GRASE pCASL technique with 12-fold acceleration using time-dependent 2D CAIPI sampling strategy, and reconstruction of the label/control time series with joint spatial and temporal total-generalized-variation (TGV) regularization. 2D CAIPI under-sampling pattern increases temporal incoherence between measurements which allows joint reconstruction of the highly accelerated ASL time series. Combining the advantages of ultra-high field strength, pTx coils, accelerated acquisition and advanced reconstruction, whole-brain CBF map with 2 mm isotropic resolution was obtained within 5 mins.
