This work investigates the repeatability of CVR (induced by acetazolamide) using ASL on a healthy cohort. Single and multi-PLD PCASL data were collected before and after the administration of acetazolamide in two identical sessions. Results showed that the mean CVR of both ASL techniques were between 20% and 60% and not significantly different. Measurement using single-PLD PCASL demonstrated higher repeatability based on a lower coefficient of variation and a higher intraclass correlations.
