We propose to combine DCE and DSC-MRI in a simultaneous acquisition and processing scheme to provide more information for estimation of the arterial input function using multi-channel blind deconvolution. On simulated and flow-phantom data, we show that DCE-DSC blind deconvolution is superior to standard DCE blind deconvolution, especially for low signal-to-noise-ratio conditions.
