Contrast-enhanced 3D MRA of the aortoiliac and infrainguinal arteries when conventional transfemoral arteriography is not feasible.


PURPOSE To evaluate whether contrast-enhanced 3-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) can substitute for transaxillary or transbrachial catheter access when angiography via the transfemoral route is not possible.
