Abstract

Contrast inherent inflow-enhanced multi-phase angiography combining multiple-phase flow-alternating inversion-recovery (CINEMA-FAIR) is an arterial-spin-labeling-based four-dimensional magnetic resonance angiography (4D-MRA) technique. Two neuroradiologists independently evaluated the depiction of the intracranial vasculatures in healthy subjects with 3T 4D-MRA using CINEMA-FAIR. Our results indicated that this technique can provide good visualization of the cerebral arteries with a high spatial and temporal resolution. It appears to have sufficient resolution for identifying flow difference in the anterior and posterior circulation in healthy subjects.
