Since the invention of arterial spin labeling (ASL) it has been acknowledged that ASL does not allow reliable detection of a white matter (WM) perfusion signal. However, recent developments such as pseudo-continuous labeling and background suppression have improved the quality. The goal of this research was to study the ability of these newer ASL sequences(More)
Intra- and multicenter reproducibility of currently used arterial spin labeling (ASL) methods were assessed at three imaging centers in the Netherlands, equipped with Philips 3TMR scanners. Six healthy participants were scanned twice at each site. The imaging protocol consisted of continuous ASL (CASL), pseudo-continuous ASL (p-CASL) with and without(More)
Flow-territory mapping by MR imaging ASL noninvasively provides a unique insight into the distribution of cerebral perfusion. The introduction of planning-free vessel-encoded pCASL made flow-territory mapping feasible for clinical use, though lack of individual planning could impede reproducibility of this technique. We assessed the reproducibility of(More)
BACKGROUND The outcome measures most frequently used in studies on the effectiveness of migraine treatment are whether the patient is free of pain, nausea, and free of photophobia/phonophobia within two hours. However, no patient-centred outcome measures are available. Therefore, we performed an online Delphi procedure to compile a list of outcome measures(More)
