PURPOSE To evaluate the signal characteristics of different iliac artery stents in MR angiography (MRA) at 3 T in comparison with 1.5 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen iliac artery stents were implanted in plastic tubes filled with a solution of Gd-DTPA and imaged at 3 T and 1.5 T using a T1-weighted 3D spoiled gradient-echo sequence. Image analysis included a subjective assessment of artifact characteristics, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) measurements in… CONTINUE READING
