Velocity selective preparations in Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Abstract:

Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technique that is able to non-invasively quantify the rate of delivery of arterial blood to tissue, known as perfusion. In this thesis a method that uses Velocity Selective (VS) preparations to generate contrast between blood and tissue spins is investigated.

The systematic errors associated with performing a VSASL experiment on imperfect hardware is first investigated. It is shown through simulations and experimen...
