We describe a time-resolved, contrast-enhanced carotid MR angiographic technique using a 3D gradient-echo sequence in combination with a sensitivity-encoding scheme. We delineate the steps involved in generating the dynamic MR angiographic images, discuss issues related to image quality, and outline differences between this technique and recently reported similar methods that implement multiple parallel receivers to reduce imaging time.
