This study aimed to explore the clinical value of random vessel-encoded arterial spin labeling (rVE-ASL) in evaluating the collateral status as well as its association with clinical outcomes in patients with ischemic stroke. Results suggested that the rVE-ASL findings were consistent with DSA/CTA findings in characterizing collateral flows and poor collateral flows evaluated by rVE-ASL were associated with poor outcomes. The rVE-ASL could be a potentially useful tool to assess the cerebral collateral circulation in patients with ischemic stroke and predict the clinical outcome.
