The purpose of our study was to demonstrate that the inflow of arterial blood in post-labeling delay can cause intravascular high signal in multi-PLD ASL that resembles arterial transit artifact and potentially interfere with clinical interpretation. An optimized inflow-saturation method was used to suppress this artifact and improve the image quality of Hadamard-encoded and sequential multi-PLD ASL.
