To evaluate the ability of spin-echo MRI to differentiate between slow flow and mural thrombus in aortic diseases, we reviewed the spin-echo MRI of 10 patients with intraaortic thrombus that had been documented by CT in 8 patients and aortography in 2 patients. Six patients had aortic aneurysms with mural thrombi, and four had aortic dissections with adherent mural thrombi within the false lumen. Five of seven gated oblique sagittal or coronal T1-weighted studies demonstrated hyperintense slow… CONTINUE READING
