Non-invasive evaluation of the cerebral blood flow (CBF) by means of arterial spin labeling (ASL) MRI offers an interesting alternative to currently used clinical perfusion measurement techniques. Recent technical developments in ASL research have elevated the quality and reliability of the technique to a level where it is ready for widespread ASL usage in clinical and research applications. However, with the focus mainly on technical improvements, several clinically relevant aspects such as patient comfort and quantitative performance have not been fully investigated to date. Dennis Heijtel throws light on such clinically relevant aspects.
