OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate a three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced breath-hold MR angiography sequence using standard MR gradients in detecting renal artery stenosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Forty-two patients referred for angiography for suspected renal artery stenosis underwent both conventional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and MR angiography. MR angiography was performed on a 1.5-T scanner with standard gradients. A fast multiplanar spoiled gradient-echo sequence… Expand
Renal artery stenosis evaluation: diagnostic performance of gadobenate dimeglumine-enhanced MR angiography--comparison with DSA.
TLDR
CE MR angiography performed with 0.1 mmol/kg gadobenate dimeglumine, compared with DSA, is safe and provides good sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy for detection of significant renal artery steno-occlusive disease. Expand
Gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography in renal artery stenosis: comparison with digital subtraction angiography.
TLDR
G gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography is a sensitive non-invasive modality useful in the assessment of clinically significant renal artery stenosis, according to the experience of two experienced interventional and body magnetic resonance radiologists. Expand

TLDR
Three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography can be useful in the preoperative evaluation of potential transplant donors and recipients and in the evaluation of vascular complications following transplantation and is also useful in staging genitourinary neoplasms. Expand
Gadobenate dimeglumine and gadofosveset trisodium for MR angiography of the renal arteries: Multicenter intraindividual crossover comparison.
TLDR
Better diagnostic performance and reader preference were found for gadobenate dimeglumine than gadofosveset in first-pass renal CE-MRA in the detection of clinically relevant renal artery stenosis. Expand
Renal MR angiography
TLDR
Three-dimensional gadolinium MR angiography accurately visualizes the renal arteries with almost no degradation from inplane saturation or motion artifacts and can be easily combined with other MR imaging techniques to provide a comprehensive assessment of the hemodynamic and functional significance of renal artery stenosis.

Technology Insight: clinical role of magnetic resonance angiography in the diagnosis and management of renal artery stenosis
TLDR
A combined MRA protocol, which might include angiographic information provided by contrast-enhanced technique in addition to renal flow information derived from phase-contrast imaging, could help in classifying patients appropriately. Expand
3D MR angiography of renal arteries: comparison of volume rendering and maximum intensity projection algorithms.
TLDR
The VR technique of renal MR angiography enabled more accurate detection and quantification of renal artery stenosis than did MIP, with significantly improved vascular delineation. Expand
Depiction of transplant renal vascular anatomy and complications: unenhanced MR angiography by using spatial labeling with multiple inversion pulses.
TLDR
Unenhanced MR angiography with SLEEK preliminarily proved to be a reliable diagnostic method for depiction of anatomy and complications of renal vascular transplant and may be used for evaluation of patients with renal transplant, and in particular for those with renal insufficiency. Expand
Contrast-enhanced MR Angiography of the renal arteries: blinded multicenter crossover comparison of gadobenate dimeglumine and gadopentetate dimeglumine.
TLDR
Results of quantitative evaluation showed increasing SNR and CNR with gadobenate dimeglumine in segments at progressively lower levels of the aorta, but increases in SNR or vessel-muscle contrast-to-noise ratio at the infrarenal aortas, while results of systematic review showed no difference in mean image quality between the two contrast agents.

Contrast-bolus MR angiography of the transplanted kidney with a low-field (0.5-T) scanner: diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity and specificity of images and reconstructions in the evaluation of vascular complications
TLDR
Contrast-enhanced MRA, even with a low-field magnetic resonance (MR) unit, is a feasible, sensitive and accurate technique for the study of the renal arteries of the transplanted kidney. Expand

Renal artery stenosis and accessory renal arteries: accuracy of detection and visualization with gadolinium-enhanced breath-hold MR angiography.
TLDR
G gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography is an accurate, minimally invasive method for detecting renal artery stenosis and is reliable for visualizing accessory renal arteries. Expand
Renal artery stenosis and accessory renal arteries: accuracy of detection and visualization with gadolinium-enhanced breath-hold MR angiography.
TLDR
To determine the accuracy of gadolinium-enhanced breath-hold magnetic resonance (MR) angiography in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis and visualization of accessory renal arteries, four MR angiograms were not evaluable because of poor image quality. Expand
Breath-hold gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography of the abdominal aorta and its major branches.
TLDR
Breath holding statistically significantly improves three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography of the renal, celiac, and superior mesenteric arteries. Expand
Comparison of digital subtraction angiography with gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis
TLDR
Gadolinium-enhanced MRA is an accurate technique for identifying patients with RAS and is less sensitive in picking up accessory renal arteries than conventional DSA. Expand
Three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography for aortoiliac inflow assessment plus renal artery screening in a single breath hold.
TLDR
This breath-hold protocol improves the accuracy of aortoiliac inflow assessment, but low resolution limits evaluation of small renal arteries. Expand
Renal artery stenosis: evaluation with breath-hold, three-dimensional, dynamic, gadolinium-enhanced versus three-dimensional, phase-contrast MR angiography.
TLDR
Gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography is superior to phase-contrast MR ang iography in accessory renal artery depiction and no statistically significant difference in the assessment of stenosis has been found between the two techniques. Expand

The combination of Gd-MRA and 3D-PC is a promising approach to the evaluation of transplant renal arteries. Expand

G gadolinium-enhanced MRA of AAA provides appropriate, essential anatomic information for aortic reconstructive surgery in a 1-hour examination devoid of contrast-related renal toxicity or catheterization-related complications attending conventional arteriography. Expand

TLDR
Renal artery visualization and detection of renovascular disease were more complete with coronal phase-contrast than with time-of-flight images, suggesting that biplanar MR angiography has considerable potential as a noninvasive screening technique for the evaluation of renov vascular disease.
