Arterial spin labeling (ASL) at 7T can be used to map cerebral blood flow (CBF) at a high spatial resolution. Previously, we have shown that different hippocampal subfields have differences in perfusion, owing to potential differences in their vascular density. Hippocampal imaging at 7T can be challenging and requires optimizations of acquisition methods, as well as integration of novel analysis strategies. Here, we map high-resolution quantitative multi-modal MRI data (T1, CBF, time-of-flight angiography) in the human hippocampus to disentangle perfusion and macrovasculature at 7T.
