While neurological imaging is mostly done in non-academic centers, the lack of academic resources, special image processing skillset and the fast paced workflow prevent radiologists in these data-rich environments from engaging in high quality clinical research that utilizes quantitative imaging. Clinical adoption of Arterial Spin Labeling could benefit from providing easy-to-use, PACS connected image processing solutions that do not require neuroscience background and provide truly quantified Cerebral Blood Flow values in any outpatient center or public hospital. Our goal is to create such a solution and bridge the gap between academic research and real world practice.
