This work investigated whether turbo magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) can replace conventional MRA in screening examination of intracranial arteries. A phantom was used to evaluate the effect of the zero-filling interpolation (ZFI) technique on spatial resolution and partial volume effect. Thirty-one consecutive patients underwent both turbo MRA with a slice thickness of 0.7 mm (data were measured as 1.33 mm sections) and conventional MRA with 1.0 mm sections. In the phantom studies, ZFI… CONTINUE READING
