We assessed labeling region selectivity on time-spatial labeling inversion pulse (Time-SLIP) with pencil beam pulse (PB Time-SLIP) for the use of visualizing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics. We compared the selectivity of labeling to the third and fourth ventricles between PB Time-SLIP and conventional Time-SLIP (cTime-SLIP) in eight volunteers and one patient using a 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). PB Time-SLIP provided more selective labeling in CSF than cTime-SLIP, particularly in complex anatomical regions.
