In this prospective study, the accuracy of whole-heart coronary MR angiography was evaluated in 131 patients with suspected coronary artery disease. The current MR angiography protocol incorporated several improvements over those used in previous studies. First, MR angiograms were acquired on axial 3-dimensional planes that encompassed the entire heart. Second, the image acquisition window in the cardiac cycle was optimized in each patient to minimize motion blurring caused by cardiac contraction. Using this approach, coronary stenoses with a reference diameter of ≥2 mm were detected with an accuracy of 94% for individual segments and 87% for individual patients.. Coronary MR angiography has been acquired in double-oblique 3-dimensional planes that followed the course of one of the major coronary arteries, necessitating repeated MR acquisitions to cover the entire coronary arteries (1). A steady-state, free-precession MR sequence permitted acquisition of a large 3-dimensional volume covering ...

Aims For catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF), proper catheter positioning is crucial and depends on knowledge of pulmonary vein (PV) anatomy. The aim of this study was to assess PV spatial orientation and ostial shape by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA).. Methods and results In 30 consecutive AF patients, CE-MRA was performed prior to ostial ablation. Using a centre-line technique, the PV ostium was defined perpendicular to this centre-line. Minimal and maximal ostial diameters, ostial perimeter, and angles in the anatomical frontal and transverse planes were measured. Twenty-one patients had four separate PVs. In four patients, there was a distinct right-middle PV and in five a common left common PV was found. Left-sided PV ostia were smaller and more elliptical than right-sided PVs. In the transverse plane, the ostia of both superior PVs were directed anteriorly (LS −15±13°, RS −13±11°) and both inferior PV ostia were directed posteriorly (LI ...

Atherosclerosis of the lower leg arteries is a common disease. Patients with this condition has symptoms of ischemia, for instance intermittent claudication (pain during exercise). Diagnosis of atherosclerosis in the legs is normally done with an interventional x-ray-based angiography (DSA- digital subtraction angiography). This is uncomfortable for the patient, and associated with risks of complications (bleeding, vascular damage, embolism).A novel approach to diagnosing atherosclerosis is the use of magnetic resonance angiography. A variant of this is the whole body magnetic resonance angiography(WB-MRA), that produce a picture of the arteries in almost the whole body (excluding the coronary arteries). WB-MRA has a number of advantages compared to DSA. It does not use ionizing radiation, is not invasive, uses a contrast medium with fewer side affects and finally gives a covers a great deal of the arteries in the body.. This study will compare WB-MRA with DSA in patients with symptoms of ...
Neurosurgery 81:688-695, 2017. Stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) requires high-quality angiographic studies because avascular trajectory planning is a prerequisite for the safety of this procedure. Some epilepsy surgery groups have begun to use computed tomography angiography and magnetic resonance T1-weighted sequence with contrast enhancement for this purpose.. OBJECTIVE: To present the first series of patients with avascular trajectory planning of SEEG based on magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).. METHODS: Thirty-six SEEG explorations for drug-resistant focal epilepsy were performed from January 2013 to December 2015. A retrospective analysis of this consecutive surgical series was then performed. Magnetic resonance imaging included MRA with a modified contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography (MRV) protocol with a short acquisition delay, which allowed simultaneous arterial and venous visualization. Our criteria for satisfactoryMRAwere the visualization of at least first-order ...
Methods and Results-Two-dimensional black-blood coronary wall magnetic resonance imaging and 3-dimensional whole-heart coronary magnetic resonance angiography were performed on 130 participants (65-84 years), including 65 hypertensive patients and 65 healthy controls. Coronary segments derived from hypertensive participants had a higher mean coronary wall thickness, a smaller vessel area, a smaller coronary wall area, a smaller lumen area, a lower coronary distensibility index, and a higher percent of the coronary wall occupying the vessel area (PWOV) than those from healthy controls. When the average PWOV was set as an ad hoc cutoff point, coronary segments with a high PWOV had a significantly higher mean wall thickness, a higher maximum wall thickness, a smaller vessel area, a smaller lumen area, a higher coronary distensibility index, and a lower coronary plaque index compared with coronary segments with a low PWOV.. ...

Twenty-two patients (64 ± 10.2 years) with suspected coronary artery disease underwent cardiac MR examination at 3 T (MAGNETOM Tim Trio, Siemens, Germany) after informed consent was obtained. Coronary arteries were imaged using an ECG-triggered, navigator-gated, inversion-recovery, segmented gradient-echo sequence with isotropic whole-heart coverage. A twelve-element matrix coil (six anterior and six posterior) was used for data acquisition. To speed up data acquisition, parallel acquisition (GRAPPA) was used in the phase-encoding direction with an acceleration factor of two. Imaging parameters included: voxel size 0.65 × 0.65 × 0.65 mm3 (interpolated from 1.3 × 1.3 × 1.3 mm3), TR/TE = 3.3/1.5 msec, flip angle = 20°, bandwidth = 700 Hz/pixel, imaging time = 8.8 ± 1.9 min. Contrast agent (0.2 mmol/kg body weight, Multihance, Bracco Imaging SpA, Italy) was intravenously administered at the rate of 0.3 ml/sec using a Medrad power injector. All patients received x-ray angiography (CAG) within ...
Background The combination of coronary MR angiography (CMRA) with cine- and late gadolinium-enhanced (LGE)-MRI provides a comprehensive assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, prognostic value of CMRA compared to cine- or LGE-MRI has not been evaluated. We sought to study the independent and incremental prognostic value of CMRA over clinical variables, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and presence of LGE.. Methods Cine-, LGE-MRI, and whole-heart CMRA were acquired by using 1.5T MR system and 32 channel cardiac coils in 196 patients (mean age, 68 ± 11; male 60%) with suspected CAD but without known CAD. LVEF was measured from cine MRI, and LGE and significant coronary stenosis (diameter stenosis ≥ 50%) were determined from LGE-MRI and CMRA, respectively. Major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) were defined as cardiac death, acute myocardial infarction, unstable angina, heart failure, and ventricular arrhythmia.. Results During a median follow-up period of 25 months ...
See related article, pages 991-993. Prabhakaran and colleagues describe a promising technique, quantitative MR angiography, as a screening tool for detecting intracranial in-stent stenosis. They looked at 14 patients with intracranial stents and compared quantitative MR angiography and conventional angiography. Using a 20% decrease in quantitative MR angiography vessel flow, they found that low blood flow measured by quantitative MR angiography at sites of intracranial stent placement was significantly associated with in-stent stenosis by catheter-based angiography. The sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive value are excellent, whereas the positive predictive value was fair. They identified all true cases of in-stent stenosis.1 This article and methodology come at a good time because intracranial stents are increasingly being used for the treatment of aneurysms as well as for treating symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic disease. Other noninvasive imaging such as MR angiography ...

With the development of medical imaging modalities and image processing algorithms, there arises a need for methods of their comprehensive quantitative evaluation. In particular, this concerns the algorithms for vessel tracking and segmentation in magnetic resonance angiography images. The problem can be approached by using synthetic images, where true geometry of vessels is known. This paper presents a framework for computer modeling of MRA imaging and the results of its validation. A new model incorporates blood flow simulation within MR signal computation kernel. The proposed solution is unique, especially with respect to the interface between flow and image formation processes. Furthermore it utilizes the concept of particle tracing. The particles reflect the flow of fluid they are immersed in and they are assigned magnetization vectors with temporal evolution controlled by MR physics. Such an approach ensures flexibility as the designed simulator is able to reconstruct flow profiles of any ...

Robust motion correction is necessary to minimize respiratory motion artefacts in coronary MR angiography (CMRA). The state-of-the-art method uses a 1D feet-head translational motion correction approach, and data acquisition is limited to a small window in the respiratory cycle, which prolongs the scan by a factor of 2-3. The purpose of this work was to implement 3D affine motion correction for Cartesian whole-heart CMRA using a 3D navigator (3D-NAV) to allow for data acquisition throughout the whole respiratory cycle. ...
Parallel imaging using sophisticated receiver coils has improved the clinical feasibility of magnetic resonance coronary angiography (MRCA). These techniques, however, are not readily available outside advanced imaging centers. Our custom-made 2-element phased array coil is readily and inexpensively assembled to address this limitation and enable the widespread application of MRCA. The 2-element phased array coil, comprised of two 4-inch, overlapping circular coils, is specifically designed for MRCA. We compare our prototype coil to two commercially available coils commonly used for MRCA. MRCA has been performed in 14 normal volunteers. Anatomic coverage, image quality, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) are calculated for each coil. The prototype coil has imaged 92.6% (125/135) of the segments compared to 83.7% (113/135) and 76.3% (103/135) (p = 0.002) using the surface coil and cardiac phased array coil, respectively. Excellent or good (grade 1-2) image quality has ...
It can be argued that magnetic resonance angiography of the aorta and peripheral vessels has undergone more dramatic changes over the last couple decades than any other form of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging. The first useful clinical applications primarily used two-dimensional time-of-flight technology. However, in the mid-1990s, this approach was replaced to a large degree by contrast-enhanced techniques using conventional agents in dynamic, multiphase mode. Blood pool agents have also been developed for use in magnetic resonance angiography, but their precise role remains to be determined. Given the risks of gadolinium contrast in patients with renal failure, which is not an unusual concomitant in patients undergoing vascular evaluation, there has been a recent resurgence in interest in the use of non-contrast magnetic resonance angiographic approaches.

The objective of our study was to investigate a multistation whole-body MR angiography (MRA) protocol using a 32-channel MR system with multicoil technology in a population of patients with suspected peripheral vascular disease (PVD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Fifty consecutive patients with suspected PVD (31 men, 19 women; age range, 46-91 years) underwent multistation whole-body contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) on a 32-channel 1.5-T MR system equipped with multicoil technology. A two-step contrast injection protocol was used: After the first injection, images of the most proximal station (station I, head and neck) were acquired, followed by the most distal station (station IV, calves). Images of ...
Both of these techniques were compared with another imaging technique called X-ray coronary angiography, which acted as the reference standard. In this way, the researchers could directly compare the results of the two scans in a single patient and then turn to X-ray scanning to confirm which was most accurate.. In X-ray coronary angiography, a contrast agent is introduced into the coronary artery and X-ray images are taken. Again, the patient is exposed to ionising radiation and in addition the technique used to introduce the contrast agent is invasive. This is an anatomical test that shows where any narrowed arteries might be.. Patients with suspected disease were randomised into two groups, receiving either CMR before SPECT (prior to confirmation with angiography) or SPECT before CMR (prior to confirmation with angiography). Offering CMR and SPECT in a random order reduces the chances of the results being influenced by bias: for example, the process of performing a scan might potentially ...
Time-resolved three-dimensional contrast-enhanced MR angiography often relies on view sharing of peripheral k-space data to enable acquisition of angiograms with both high spatial resolution and a rapid frame rate. It is typically assumed that k-space will be fully sampled during passage of the contrast bolus arterial phase. However, this is not the case when view sharing is incomplete, for example, at the leading edge of an enhancing vessel or if acquisition time is limited as in fluoroscopic tracking for multistation bolus chase MR angiography. Incomplete view sharing will degrade image quality, for example, by reducing vessel signal and sharpness and increasing undersampling artifacts. In this work, the evolution of angiogram quality with view sharing is quantitatively assessed in phantom experiments and in vivo contrast-enhanced MR angiography calf studies. It is demonstrated that there are multiple sets of sequence parameters that can yield a target image update time, but the choice of ...

The most prevalent method for acquiring an NMR data set from which an image can be reconstructed is referred to as the Fourier transform imaging technique or spin-warp technique. This technique is discussed in an article entitled Spin-Warp NMR Imaging and Applications to Human Whole-Body Imaging, by W.A. Edelstein et al., Physics in Medicine and Biology, Vol. 25, p. 751-756 (1980). It employs a variable amplitude phase encoding magnetic field gradient pulse prior to the acquisition of NMR signals to phase encode spatial information in the direction of this gradient. In a two-dimensional implementation (2DFT), for example, spatial information is encoded in one direction by applying a phase encoding gradient (Gy) along that direction, and then a signal is acquired in the presence of a readout magnetic field gradient (Gx) in a direction orthogonal to the phase encoding direction. The readout gradient present during the spin-echo acquisition encodes spatial information in the orthogonal ...
If contrast is used, a small IV needle will be inserted into your hand or arm before you are moved into the MRI machine. The contrast will be injected during one set of images. It helps to make some organs and vessels easier to see on the pictures. You might have an allergic reaction to the dye, but this is rare. You will lie on a special table. This table will be moved inside the opening of the MRI machine. Most MRIs consist of 2-6 sets of images. Each one will take between 2-15 minutes. You will need to lie still while the images are being taken. You may need to hold your breath briefly. Technicians will communicate with you through an intercom from another room.. ...
December 31, 2008 - The FDA today approved Vasovist Injection (gadofosveset trisodium), manufactured by EPIX Pharmaceuticals, is reportedly the first contrast imaging agent for use in patients undergoing magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).. Although MRA can be performed without the use of a contrast imaging agent, Vasovist is designed to provide a clearer image of blood vessels, compared to MRA without contrast, in patients who are suspected of having blockages or other problems with the blood vessels in their abdomen or limbs. Vasovist is injected into a peripheral vein and no artery is punctured, thus the potential risks are fewer than injecting X-ray dye an artery, a procedure that may result in injury to vessel walls, blood clots, allergic reactions and potential kidney damage.. The active substance in Vasovist is gadolinium. The safety and efficacy of Vasovist was established in two clinical studies of patients with known or suspected aortoiliac disease. In the studies, patients underwent ...

Utility of CT angiography and MR angiography for the follow-up of experimental aneurysms treated with stents or Guglielmi detachable coils.: We recommend furthe
The role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in day to day clinical practice is growing. Gadolinium based contrast agents have traditionally been used to enhance the signal from flowing blood, allowing rapid acquisition of high spatial resolution angiograms for the diagnosis of vascular disease. The ability to view the anatomy in 3D, as well as the minimally invasive nature of MR image acquisitions, offer some advantages over more invasive x-ray angiography.. Our research has been focused on the development of MR k-space sampling and image reconstruction strategies for acquisition of high spatial resolution time-resolved MR angiograms. The ability of time-resolved 3D angiography to depict compromised flow has proven a valuable tool in assessing the severity of vascular disease, a major source of mortality and morbidity in industrialized nations.. Recently, developments in contrast-enhanced MR image acquisitions and data analysis are providing a larger range of options for the diagnosis of ...

Understanding of structural and functional characteristics of the vascular microenvironment in gliomas and the impact of antiangiogenic treatments is essential for developing better therapeutic strategies. Although a number of methods exist in which this process can be studied experimentally, no single noninvasive test has the capacity to provide information concerning both microvascular function and morphology. The purpose of present study is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a novel three-dimensional ?R2-based microscopic magnetic resonance angiography (3D ?R2-µMRA) technique for longitudinal imaging of tumor angiogenesis and monitoring the effects of antiangiogenic treatment in rodent brain tumor models. Using 3D ?R2-µMRA, a generally consistent early pattern of vascular development in gliomas was revealed, in which a single feeding vessel was visualized first (arteriogenesis), followed by sprouting angiogenesis. Considerable variability of the tumor-associated vasculature was then ...

RESULTS. There were 27 patients (14 male, 13 female) with a mean age of 62 (range, 44-77) years. There were 10 patients with renal transplants; their native renal arteries were not evaluated. Each of the two experienced interventional and body magnetic resonance radiologists, who were blinded to the results, reviewed the digital subtraction angiography and magnetic resonance angiography images respectively. Digital subtraction angiography was used as the standard of reference. A total of 39 renal arteries from these 27 patients were evaluated. One of the arteries was previously stented and could not be assessed with magnetic resonance angiography due to severe artefacts. Of the remaining 38 renal arteries, two were graded as normal, seven as having mild stenosis (=50% but =75%). Magnetic resonance angiography and digital subtraction angiography were concordant in 89% of the arteries; magnetic resonance angiography overestimated the degree of stenosis in 8% and underestimated it in 3% of them. In ...

AU - Siegelman, Evan S.. AU - Naji, Ali. AU - Markmann, James F.. PY - 2005/5. Y1 - 2005/5. N2 - Vascular complications are a common cause of postoperative dysfunction in a pancreatic transplant. Coronal three-dimensional (3D) contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography performed with high spatial and temporal resolution is a safe and effective method of assessing these vascular complications. A study was performed of selected patients who had undergone MR imaging and MR angiography during the past 6 years for evaluation of graft dysfunction following pancreatic transplantation. Thrombosis within peripheral stump vessels involving either the arterial or venous segments was a commonly observed vascular complication. Isolated distal arterial stump thrombi are incidental findings that may not require ...
Conventional coronary angiography frequently underestimates the true burden of atherosclerosis. As reported by Glagov et al,1 the initial response to endothelial injury and development of atherosclerosis is vessel enlargement, with relative preservation of lumen diameter. Subsequent plaque progression, with lumen-encroachment stenoses, is a later event. Invasive x-ray coronary angiography and bright-blood2 3 coronary magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) only allow for assessment of luminal vessel diameter and do not provide direct information regarding coronary vessel wall thickness or atherosclerotic plaque. Recent intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) studies4 5 have shown that lesion-site cross-sectional area, minimum lesion diameter, cross-sectional narrowing, and area stenosis are good predictors for subsequent acute cardiac events. However, this invasive technique is not appropriate for screening or serial examinations. Apart from plaque burden and luminal encroachment, plaque composition is a ...
In many preliminary and feasibility studies, various contrast-enhanced MR angiorgaphic techniques have been implemented in the assessment of extracranial disease of the carotid artery. Different strategies are used to optimize image quality, including time-resolved and high-resolution techniques. Most of these reports, although based on small numbers of patients, suggest that contrast-enhanced MR angiography could become a diagnostic alternative as a fast, first screening method in patients suspected of having carotid artery disease, independently from the technique employed in the study.. DSA is still considered to be the criterion standard for imaging of arteriosclerotic supraaortic vessel disease. Harboring the risks of thromboembolic events, this technique can reduce the overall benefit of endarterectomy. Noninvasive techniques for imaging supraaortic vessels prevent this risk related to the diagnostic procedure and can be regarded as a safe alternative to DSA whenever possible.. We chose to ...
BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance (MR)-guided vascular interventions are of increasing interest, and, with the use of contrast-enhanced techniques, intraarterial contrast-enhanced MR angiography (ia-ce-MRA) competes with intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (ia-DSA) for the diagnostic evaluation of the infrainguinal vessel tree. PURPOSE: To assess the diagnostic value of ia-ce-MRA and high-resolution T1-weighted (hr-T1w) imaging compared to the gold-standard ia-DSA for residual stenosis and local dissections after femoropopliteal recanalization in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eight patients with PAOD and short vessel occlusion of their femoropopliteal arteries underwent recanalization and balloon positioning under DSA. Patients were transferred to a short-bore MR scanner. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was accomplished under MR fluoroscopy. Pre- and postinterventional ia-ce three-dimensional (3D) gradient-echo MRA with ...
Transcatheter arterial chemo-embolization (TACE) is a therapeutic procedure to treat primary and metastatic liver cancer. It requires prior delineation of the hepatic arteries on magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) data and identification of the vessels supplying the tumor. Manual segmentation is extremely challenging and time consuming, thereby increasing the risk of wrongfully identifying the feeding vessels. We present a vascular path planning tool for TACE procedures by automatically segmenting the hepatic arteries on MRA. The proposed method first detects the celiac trunk from the aorta, then localizes and tags bifurcations throughout the arterial network for path planning. The algorithm is based on a multiple hypothesis tracking approach used to propagate deformable mesh surfaces. We validated the proposed framework on 20 liver-cancer-patients using abdominal MRA with 20 seconds delay after contrast injection. We show that the algorithm improves the selectivity of the arterial segments ...
Focal damage to the fornices is uncommon and may be due to surgical removal of ventricular cysts and tumours.1 We report a case of bilateral fornix infarction with reduced fractional anisotropy values at 3 T after anterior communicating artery aneurysm clipping.. A healthy 33-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with the incidental finding of an anterior communicating artery (ACoA) aneurysm on magnetic resonance angiography. Neurological examination was normal. Digital subtraction angiography visualised a broad based, tapered and 4 mm sized aneurysm of the ACoA and a median callosal artery (fig 1C). The ACoA aneurysm was treated with surgical clipping because of its irregular configuration. After surgery, the patient was drowsy with fluctuating impaired vigilance. She was disoriented in time, space and person, and revealed anterograde amnesia and amnesic aphasia. Her relatives noticed personality changes, psychomotor slowing and decreased spontaneity of speech and behaviour. Apart from ...

Grey-scale and Doppler ultrasound (US) are alternative modalities to diagnose soft-tissue vascular anomalies [16]. However, US has only a limited ability to display the full extent of large lesions and to demonstrate an intra-osseous component [17,18]. Some MRI techniques have been used for classification of peripheral vascular lesions [18,19,20]. Time-of-flight MR angiography can show feeding arteries with high-flow; however, this modality has a limitation regarding smaller vessels [19]. A previous study by van Rijswijk et al. [20] has demonstrated that with the use of the dynamic contrast-enhancement gradient-echo technique, venous malformations were distinguished from non-venous malformations with high specificity. Another study has demonstrated that time-resolved MR projection angiography was useful for the separation of high- and low-flow vascular malformations [18]. Although direct puncture venography is useful for the diagnosis of VMs and also for confirming lymphatic fluid leaks to ...
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in the United States. CAD is implicated in 900,000 deaths per year 1.5 million heart attacks occur each year estimated yearly cost of care for patients with CAD is $60 billion dollars More than 1 million cardiac catheterizations are performed each year cardiac catherization is used to define coronary artery anatomy, and also to guide therapy for cardiac patients X-ray coronary angiography is associated with significant radiation exposure and a small risk (1.7%) of serious complications estimated per-patient cost of cardiac catherization is $3000-$5000 Cardiac catheterization has diagnostic limitations X-ray angiography provides little information regarding coronary artery blood flow, and does not address the functional significance of coronary lesions
Purpose: To evaluate the suitability of an improved version of an automatic segmentation method based on geodesic active regions (GAR) for segmenting cerebral vasculature with aneurysms from 3D X-ray reconstruc-tion angiography (3DRA) and time of °ight magnetic resonance angiography (TOF-MRA) images available in the clinical routine.Methods: Three aspects of the GAR method have been improved: execution time, robustness to variability in imaging protocols and robustness to variability in image spatial resolutions. The improved GAR was retrospectively evaluated on images from patients containing intracranial aneurysms in the area of the Circle of Willis and imaged with two modalities: 3DRA and TOF-MRA. Images were obtained from two clinical centers, each using di®erent imaging equipment. Evaluation included qualitative and quantitative analyses ofthe segmentation results on 20 images from 10 patients. The gold standard was built from 660 cross-sections (33 per image) of vessels and aneurysms, ...
We tested the hypothesis that differences in proximal and distal contrast bolus arrival times may result in insufficient vascular signal in the distal part of the aortoiliofemoral territory with routinely used timing techniques. The difference in arrival time of the contrast medium bolus between the aorta and the common femoral arteries was measured in 14 patients undergoing magnetic resonance angiography of the aortoiliac arteries. A dual-station test bolus technique adjusting for this difference was evaluated. The variation coefficient of the signal intensity in six defined locations and signal intensities (SI) normalised to fat were calculated. Comparisons were made with findings in 13 patients examined with a fluoroscopically triggered timing technique (BolusTrak, Philips Medical Systems, Best, The Netherlands). The difference in bolus arrival time between proximal and distal vessels was 0-7 s. In 3 of 14 patients it was 5.6-7 s. There was a tendency towards a lower mean variation ...
Animal models offer a flexible experimental environment for studying atherosclerosis. The mouse is the most commonly used animal, however, the underlying hemodynamics in larger animals such as the rabbit are far closer to that of humans. The aortic arch is a vessel with complex helical flow and highly heterogeneous shear stress patterns which may influence where atherosclerotic lesions form. A better understanding of intraspecies flow variation and the impact of geometry on flow may improve our understanding of where disease forms. In this work, we use magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and 4D phase contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) to image and measure blood velocity in the rabbit aortic arch. Measured flow rates from the PC-MRI were used as boundary conditions in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models of the arches. Helical flow, cross flow index (CFI), and time-averaged wall shear stress (TAWSS) were determined from the simulated flow field. Both traditional geometric metrics ...

The digital subtraction angiography method useful for three dimensional (3D) imaging of a selected volume of a body comprises the following steps. Acquiring first and second 3D data sets representative of an image of substantially the same selected volume in the body, the first and second data sets being acquired at different times corresponding to a pre- and a post injection of a contrast medium, respectively. Determining common reference points for spatially corresponding subvolumes in the data sets. Comparing in a 3D spatial manner data in subvolumes of the second data set with data in corresponding subvolumes in the first data set in order to determine a new reference point in each of the subvolumes of the first data set which results in a best match of the spatial similarity of the data in the corresponding subvolumes of the second data set. Spatially interpolating new data for the subvolumes of said first data set using the new reference points determined above and the originally acquired
MRIs are used to scan and examine one part of your body at a time. The scan can focus on many parts of the anatomy. There is even a form of MRI that can look at blood vessels and the flow of the blood as it goes through them. This is called Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA). These kinds of scans can help to find arterial and vein problems, such as a blocked vessel, torn vessel lining or aneurysm. The different kinds of MRI scans include, but are not limited to: Abdomen, Adrenal Glands, Ankle (Achilles), Bladder, Brain, Breast, Cervical Spine (C-Spine), Chest, Coccyx (Tailbone), Elbow, Face (Maxillofacial, Parotid Glands), Femur (Thigh, Upper Leg), Fingers, Foot, Forearm (Lower Arm), Hand, Hip, Humerus (Upper Arm), IACs (Inner Ear), Kidneys (Renal, Knee, Liver, Lower Leg (Calf, Tibia, Fibula), Lumbar Spine (L-Spine), Mandible (Jaw), MRA Abdomen (Abdominal Aorta), MRA Brain, MRA Chest, MRA Kidneys, MRA Knee, MRA Neck, Nasopharynx (Tongue), Neck, Orbits (Ears), Pancreas, Pelvis, Pituitary ...

A 39-year-old man with no known cardiovascular risk factors was hospitalized for chest pain radiating to the side. Type A aortic dissection was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography and computed tomography (CT). Urgent surgery was performed, in which the ascending aorta was replaced with a valved tube graft (Bentall-Bono procedure). The patient had a phenotype typical of Marfan disease: height of 190 cm, long limbs, scoliosis and dural ectasia.. Postoperative follow-up included yearly imaging studies with transthoracic echocardiography and magnetic resonance angiography of the aorta. Two years later, after the aorta had reached a diameter of 59 mm in the curve distal to the origin of the supra-aortic trunks (Figure 1), a second operation, consisting of an elephant trunk technique (Figure 2) with on-pump circulation and retrograde cerebral perfusion was performed to repair the arch. The patient was thus prepared for the third and last operation, performed three months later and involving ...
Abnormalities in the vascular pattern of the retina are associated with retinal diseases and are also risk factors for systemic diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases. The three-dimensional retinal vascular pattern is mostly formed congenitally, but is then modified over life, in response to aging, vessel wall dystrophies and long term changes in blood flow and pressure. A characteristic of the vascular pattern that is appreciated by clinicians is vascular tortuosity, i.e. how curved or kinked a blood vessel, either vein or artery, appears along its course. We developed a new quantitative metric for vascular tortuosity, based on the vessels angle of curvature, length of the curved vessel over its chord length (arc to chord ratio), number of curvature sign changes, and combined these into a unidimensional metric, Tortuosity Index (TI). In comparison to other published methods this method can estimate appropriate TI for vessels with constant curvature sign and vessels with equal arc to ...

In addition, MRA is helpful in assessing vascular malformations, which occur when blood or lymph vessels fail to develop normally before birth. The affected vessels become tangled and change the normal flow of the blood through the brain. Some patients have headaches and seizures, but others may be asymptomatic. Vascular malformations can cause hemorrhage and subsequent neurologic damage. Lastly, MRA may aid in evaluating some types of headaches.. Compared with catheter angiography, MRA is less invasive, less expensive, and faster to perform. For conventional angiography, a catheter is inserted though the patients groin and threaded up into the artery in the brain. MRA does not require this catheter. As a result, it eliminates related complications such as possible damage to an artery.. In addition, because MRA relies on the natural magnetic properties of hydrogen atoms in the body, injections of contrast material are not always needed. This feature is especially important in patients who have ...
Neurovascular MR angiography (MRA) is rapidly gaining greater clinical acceptance. To provide functional information, novel techniques of acquisition, information processing, and display are used, generating a new set of artifacts. The purpose of this paper is to outline the causes, provide examples, and note clinical problems associated with MRA artifacts by grouping them into six common types: 1) poor visualization of small vessels, 2) overestimation of stenosis, 3) view-to-view variations, 4) false positives, 5) false negatives, and 6) vessel overlap. This in turn will lead to four generalized solutions: 1) optimize acquisition parameters, 2) edit volume boundaries before performing maximum intensity projection reconstructions, 3) refer to the individual source images, and 4) use alternative image processing. By organizing and simplifying both clinical problems and solutions into major categories, a greater understanding of the current clinical indications and the overall goals of MRA can be ...

New research published in the Nov. 21 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology continues to advance the understanding of how whole-heart coronary MRI can be used to detect heart disease.. One drawback of heart MRIs is that clear images can be difficult to obtain. The hearts constant beating coupled with a patients constant breathing can blur images, rendering them unusable. Typically, images are collected during diastole. Researchers at Mie University Hospital and Matsusaka Central Hospital in Japan investigated whether image data should be collected at other times.. Researchers used whole-heart MRIs on 131 patients suspected of having coronary artery stenosis. In 48 patients, especially those with faster heart rates, the optimal time to collect data occurred while the heart was contracting rather than resting. Overall, useable images were collected in 113 patients, or 86 percent of the study participants. The study found that, for coronary arteries of at least 2 mm in ...

Two intertwined needs have promoted the development of T1 mapping in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) during the past decade. The first need relates to the desire for greater spatial granularity as investigators venture outside the infarct- and scar-sizing paradigm to probe the regional heterogeneity of myocardial damage associated with diverse disease processes (1-3), the substrate of arrhythmias (4,5), and the possibility of CMR-guided arrhythmia ablation (6), as well as stem cell therapy (7). The second need, also rooted in the desire to investigate tissue structure using CMR, results in large part from the dependence on contrast kinetics that imposes significant limitations to a more complete understanding of basic cardiac disease processes (8,9). In this issue of iJACC, the report by Puntmann et al. (10) gets us closer to both goals by demonstrating that T1 mapping, carefully performed at 3-T, not only advances our knowledge of differences in the size and/or type of myocardial extracellular ...
