Perfusion Imaging With Arterial Spin Labeling Ucla Brain Mapping Center Seminar Series

UCLA Brain Mapping Center Seminar Series
Because it is both quantitative and noninvasive, arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion MRI is a powerful and convenient tool for basic and clinical research. Our group is focused on improving the quality and of the technique and exploring the range of applications for which it can be used. New developments in ASL acquisition will be described with an emphasis on quantification, speed, and image quality. Applications of ASL to resting perfusion differences in disease, characterization of changes with challenges, and studying resting state fluctuations will be presented.
