Description

Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and magnetic resonance venography (MRV) enable noninvasive imaging of vascular structures without using ionizing radiation. Pulse sequences are constructed to generate signal from blood flow by taking advantage of variable magnetic relaxation properties and magnetic susceptibilities. MRA/MRV in conjunction with MRI offer excellent soft tissue detail while utilizing vascular characteristics to help identify different lesions. Both sequences can be performed either with or without contrast.
