Based on the 1st edition this 2nd edition volume provides a completely revised comprehensive overview of the current state of the development in magnetic resonance (MR) vascular imaging. The basic principles and technical features of MR angiography are outlined, consideration being given to both flow-dependent and flow-independent contrast-enhanced approaches. Specific chapters focus on image display techniques, blood flow quantification, hardware configurations, and the limitations and artifacts of MR angiography. The well-established approach of providing a clinical overview of MR angiography in different vascular areas has been continued, with the presentation of a large number of and representative MR angiograms based on current acquisition techniques. Suitable examination protocols for different vascular regions and lesions are described to facilitate correct application of the technique. Systematic comparison is made with other vascular imaging techniques.
