Abstract

A volume-targeted contrast agent-enhanced breath-hold coronary magnetic resonance angiographic technique was optimized and evaluated in 16 volunteers. Substantial increases in coronary signal-to-noise ratio, contrast-to-noise ratio, lengths of depiction, and vessel sharpness were observed on enhanced images. The imaging approach with two 20-mL injections of contrast agent covers the left and right coronary arteries in two breath holds and is a promising method for coronary imaging.
