Velocity selective ASL (VSASL) is the latest addition to the family of ASL techniques, with good promise on resolving transit delay sensitivity in ASL. Though an improvement in SNR efficiency has been reported by using two-module VS saturation and VS inversion pulse, the comparison between them is yet to be done. This study aims to compare their theoretical performance with Bloch simulation and a few realistic scenarios and look for knowledge about existing limitations which can, in turn, lead to further improvement of these techniques. Additionally, a few variants of VSI pulses including most recent improvement were explored and compared.
