PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare contrast enhanced MR angiography (MRA) with gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA) to MRA with gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA), a high relaxivity paramagnetic contrast agent. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve patients referred for carotid artery stenosis were examined with MR angiography using a fast spoiled gradient echo sequence. Gd-DTPA and Gd-BOPTA enhanced MR angiography were performed within 48-72 hours using a dose of 0.1 mmol/kg for Gd-BOPTA… CONTINUE READING
