Abstract

Summary: Using carotid bifurcation phantom models with different degrees of stenoses, we evaluated the accuracy of vessel lumen representation on MR images obtained from the inverse Fourier transform of different k-space percentages. Our results show that the lower thresholds of truncated k-space sampling are dictated by the severity of luminal narrowing. The defined thresholds may help improve efficiency of 3D MR imaging of the carotid arteries while maintaining adequate luminal representation.
