Abstract

Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) has opened a unique window into the human brain function and perfusion physiology. Altogether fast and of intrinsic high spatial resolution, ASL is a technique very appealing not only for the diagnosis of vascular diseases, but also in basic neuroscience for the follow-up of small perfusion changes occurring during brain activation. However, due to limited signal-to-noise ratio and complex flow kinetics, ASL is one of the more challenging disciplines within magnetic resonance imaging. In this paper, the theoretical background and main implementations of ASL are revisited. In particular, the different uses of ASL, the pitfalls and possibilities are described and illustrated using clinical cases.
