Abstract

Conventional contrast-enhanced angiography is the gold standard for visualization of the vascular tree supplied by the major cerebral arteries and assessment of collateral flow. Thus far, however, no methods are available to assess the actual flow territories of the individual cerebral arteries. In the present study, we evaluate a noninvasive arterial spin labeling MRI method for selective mapping of the flow territories of the left and right internal carotid arteries and posterior circulation (basilar artery and vertebral arteries).
