A comprehensive overview of the current state of development in magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). After an initial outline of the basic principles of the technique and a general description of flow phenomena, the individual chapters are devoted to a full range of technical considerations. Practical recommendations for typical examination protocols of different vascular areas and lesions are given to facilitate correct application of the procedure. The advantages and drawbacks of MRA are discussed in comparison with other imaging techniques, and a catalogue of generally accepted indications is provided. To complete the picture, the book looks at possible future developments.
