Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Techniques, Indications and by PDF

The appearance of contrast-enhanced MRA within the early to mid Nineteen Nineties revolutionized the scientific method of vascular imaging: a correct non-invasive imaging modality, no longer requiring ionizing radiation or probably nephrotoxic iodinated distinction media, was once in a position to compete with the extra unsafe and invasive catheter angiography. at the present time, MRA is a secure, easy-to-perform strategy typically utilized in so much imaging facilities, and the ongoing improvement of quicker, extra strong magnets and better distinction brokers is more and more aiding to beat a number of the early barriers of the approach. Subdivided into 3 sections (technique, symptoms and functional purposes) and written via the world over well known specialists within the box, this quantity sticks out within the present literature on MRA by means of providing:
- distinctive info on series parameters for various magnets and vascular territories for the optimization of the MRA technique;
- a extensive review of the critical symptoms for which contrast-enhanced MR angiography is preferably suited;
- the common MR imaging findings linked to numerous pathologies;
- the appropriateness of contrast-enhanced MRA in comparison with different modalities, reminiscent of CTA and CEUS;
- the aptitude pitfalls and barriers of the strategy in scientific routine.
The quantity will turn out necessary to radiologists and clinicians wishing to extend, enhance, or consolidate their regimen method of vascular MR imaging.
