Perfusion imaging can provide critical information to assess vasculature status and tissue viability of knee bone marrow. Arterial spin labeling, as a non-invasive and non-contrast-enhanced perfusion imaging approach, is well-suited for routine assessment of bone marrow perfusion, longitudinal monitoring of disease progression and repeated evaluation of therapy response. Recently, knee epiphyseal bone marrow ASL imaging has been demonstrated at 3T with promising results by using FAIR ss-FSE method. However, the ss-FSE image readout only supports single-slice acquisitions. To overcome this limitation, we implemented and evaluated FAIR RESOLVE for multi-slice knee epiphyseal bone marrow perfusion imaging.
