Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) continues to undergo exciting technological advances that are rapidly being translated into clinical practice. It also has evident advantages over other imaging modalities, including CT angiography and ultrasonography. With the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations, this book reviews the current role of MRA of the body. It is divided into three sections. The first section is devoted to issues relating to image acquisition technique and sequences, which are explored in depth. The second and principal section addresses the clinical applications of MRA in various parts of the body, including the neck vessels, the spine, the thoracic aorta and pulmonary vessels, the heart and coronary arteries, the abdominal aorta and renal arteries, and peripheral vessels. The final section considers the role of MRA in patients undergoing liver or pancreas and kidney transplantation. This book will be an invaluable aid to all radiologists who work with MRA.Table of contents Image Acquisition Technique and Sequences: Flow-Based MRA.- Contrast Media.-Contrast-Enhanced MRA.- Artifacts.- Image Processing.- Clinical Applications: Radiologic Vascular Anatomy.- Neck Vessels.- Spinal MRA.- Thoracic Aorta and Pulmonary Vessels.- Heart and Coronary Arteries.- Abdominal Aorta and Renal Arteries.- Peripheral Vessels.- Special Topics -Transplants: MRA in Liver and in Orthotopic Liver Transplants.-MRA in Transplanted Pancreas and Kidneys.- Subject Index.- List of Contributors.
