A stimulated echo sequence was used to obtain 19F NMR spectra from within a 4‐ml voxel in a cat brain. The time dependence of the 19F NMR signal from an inert gas (CHF3) was used to calculate the blood flow in the voxel. The position of the voxel was selected using a 1H MR image. © 1990 Academic Press, Inc.
