In this work, the application of velocity-selective inversion ASL in healthy breast tissue is demonstrated for the first time. The measurements show a low measured signal in breast tissue. However, the prominent fat artifacts that appear in the images will need to be addressed in future work. The technique presented here has nonetheless been shown to hold promise in the field of non-invasive breast cancer diagnostics with further development, particularly the inclusion of background suppression to get clear perfusion signal.
