Pseudo-continuous arterial spin labelling (pCASL) is the MRI method of choice for non-invasive perfusion measurement in research and clinical practice. Knowledge of the labelling efficiency, α, is essential for accurate quantification of cerebral blood flow (CBF). Typically, a theoretical α value is used, based on an idealistic model and an assumption of spins flowing perpendicularly to the labelling plane. The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of violating this assumption, and to characterize the influence of labelling plane angulation with respect to the vessel direction on labelling efficiency and measured CBF. The effect of labelling plane angulation on labelling efficiency was demonstrated using a numerical simulation of spins at different velocities. Acquisitions from healthy volunteers were used to test the effect of a range of angulation offsets. Additional sub-optimal positions of the labelling plane with respect to the vertebral arteries, at locations where the direction of flow changes significantly from the head-foot direction, were also considered. No significant change in the measured CBF was seen when the labelling plane was angled up to 60° to the labelled vessel or when it was placed in sub-optimal positions. This study shows that in adult subjects, the efficiency of pCASL is robust to the angulation and positioning of the labelling plane beyond the range of potential operator error.
