Abstract: We propose a new method, displacement spectrum (DiSpect) imaging, for probing in vivo complex tissue dynamics such as motion, flow, diffusion and perfusion. Based on stimulated echos and Fourier encoding of displacement, our flexible approach enables observation of spin dynamics over short (milliseconds) to long (seconds) evolution times. We demonstrate applications for arterial perfusion imaging and complex post perfusion venous flow imaging in the brain.
