PURPOSE To minimize venous overlay at the calf station in contrast-enhanced three-dimensional (3D) stepping-table magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) using a continuous cuff-compression technique during MR data acquisition. MATERIAL AND METHODS Within 14 months, 32 patients suffering from symptomatic peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) with a bilateral ankle-brachial index (ABI) of 0.8 or below were consecutively enrolled in this study. Unilateral cuff-compression of the proximal… CONTINUE READING
