Abstract

The authors evaluated a flow-independent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging technique in extremity veins with slow flow that relies on the prolonged T2 of blood to create angiographic contrast. A commercially available heavily T2-weighted fast-spin-echo sequence was optimized for MR venography in volunteer and phantom studies. Good depiction of venous anatomy was routinely obtained with the optimized method. Fast-spin-echo MR venography allowed evaluation of slow-flow systems such as the calf and forearm veins.
