ECG-triggered arterial FLASH-MR flow measurement using an external standard.


In ECG-triggered FLASH-MR images, the inflow of unsaturated spins into the imaging plane results in the reproducible delineation of time variant flow in the arterial system. With the additional acquisition of an external reference image upstream the arterial vessel under investigation, the quantification of flow is possible with the FLASH-MR sequence in one… (More)
