Previous research has shown that spin-lock imaging with low locking amplitude can quantify the spatial characteristics of intrinsic susceptibility gradients in tissues which likely reflect vascular microstructure. We evaluated the capability of spin-lock dispersion imaging with weak locking fields to detect vasoconstriction in rat brains under oxygen challenges.
