Evaluation of peak skeletal muscle perfusion in the lower extremities of athletes using arterial spin labeling

Abstract

Background Arterial spin labeling (ASL) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows for evaluation of skeletal muscle perfusion and provides a non-invasive index of vascular function. Previous studies have investigated ASL responses during reactive hyperemia in healthy subjects and patients with peripheral vascular disease; however, ASL has not been applied for… (More)
