We report the development of a new MRI technique which allows spins from right-sided arteries to be labeled separately from spins from left-sided arteries. This method uses two spatially-selective adiabatic inversion pulses to alternate the labeling of the right carotid and vertebral artery separate from the left carotid and vertebral artery. Normal volunteers were scanned on a clinical 1.5 T system and the resultant brain images correlated with the T2 anatomic images. Arterial anatomy was depicted using the new sequence and corresponded to the labeling scheme employed by the sequence. It was demonstrated that spatially selective inversion pulses permit the encoding of the spins within specific vascular origins and the observation of their run-off territory.
