Vessel-encoded pseudocontinuous arterial spin labeling allows the acquisition of vessel-selective angiograms and vascular territory perfusion maps. The technique generates a periodic variation in inversion efficiency across space that can be manipulated to encode specific combinations of vessels. Currently, the choice of these encodings is limited to scenarios with few vessels and may not optimize the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Here we present an automated, rapid method for calculating a mi...Expand abstract
