Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) using steady-state free precession (SSFP) pulse sequences is described. Using SSFP, vascular structures can be visualized with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at a substantial (delay) time after the initial arterial pass of contrast media. The peak blood SSFP signal was diminished by
