We investigated the feasibility of performing black-blood MR angiography (MRA) with the gradient and spin-echo (GRASE) pulse sequence. Phantom experiments and human testing were conducted, and the results were compared with those of turbo spin-echo (TSE). We demonstrated that both techniques are able to produce signal suppression of flowing fluid to… CONTINUE READING
