We studied the feasibility of pseudocontinuous arterial spin labeling (pCASL) at 7 T. Simulations were performed to find the optimal labeling parameters for pCASL, with particular attention to the maximum-allowed specific absorption rate (SAR). Subsequently, pCASL experiments (four volunteers) were performed to find the B1 efficiency at the labeling position with and without high-permittivity pads placed around the head, and to study the optimal labeling duration (four separate volunteers… CONTINUE READING
