One subject with Moyamoya disease was scanned with radial vibe sequence. GRASP reconstruction was performed using different number of spokes/frame. ROI-based analysis performed to compare the maximum slope for each ROI placed in the vessels showed that the faster imaging gave the larger slope, but the blurring at the corner of TIC is seen at the higher temporal resolution. By using images with 5 spokes/frame, voxel-by-voxel analysis could create the arrival map and the maximum slope map.
