To verify the characteristics of DANTE for vascular suppression, T2 values of the ASL signal under the application of DANTE were determined. While T2 values without DANTE decreased as the PLD increased, T2 values with DANTE (T2_DANTE) did not change among the PLDs. Moreover, T2_DANTE were equivalent to those of the reference. The positive correlation between T2 values and the ATT without DANTE was not observed when DANTE was used. T2_DANTE were neither dependent on the ATT nor PLD. Therefore, DANTE separates the spin compartments in ASL by selective elimination of intra-vascular signals from total ASL signals.
