Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Techniques, Indications and Practical Applications

Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Techniques, Indications and Practical Applications

The creation of contrast-enhanced MRA within the early to mid Nineties revolutionized the scientific method of vascular imaging: a correct non-invasive imaging modality, now not requiring ionizing radiation or in all likelihood nephrotoxic iodinated distinction media, used to be in a position to compete with the extra harmful and invasive catheter angiography. this present day, MRA is a secure, easy-to-perform approach usually utilized in so much imaging facilities, and the continuing improvement of swifter, extra robust magnets and more suitable distinction brokers is more and more assisting to beat a few of the early barriers of the process. Subdivided into 3 sections (technique, symptoms and useful functions) and written via across the world well known specialists within the box, this quantity stands proud within the present literature on MRA through providing:

- designated info on series parameters for various magnets and vascular territories for the optimization of the MRA technique;

- a vast evaluation of the crucial symptoms for which contrast-enhanced MR angiography is preferably suited;

- the common MR imaging findings linked to quite a few pathologies;

- the appropriateness of contrast-enhanced MRA in comparison with different modalities, reminiscent of CTA and CEUS;

- the capability pitfalls and boundaries of the approach in medical routine.

The quantity will turn out necessary to radiologists and clinicians wishing to extend, increase, or consolidate their regimen method of vascular MR imaging.
