Arterial spin labelled cardiac magnetic resonance (ASL-CMR) imaging is a non-contrast myocardial perfusion (MP) imaging technique which can detect clinically relevant changes in MP under vasodilatory stress. Existing ASL-CMR techniques have limited spatial coverage because they cannot acquire multiple slices during the limited duration of pharmacologically induced peak stress (~3-4 min). In this work, we demonstrate the feasibility of a using carefully designed single shot echo planar imaging sequence for multi slice ASL-CMR at 3T.
