We compared the efficacy of MR angiography with that of conventional angiography for visualizing the renal arteries and detecting renovascular disease. Thirty-three MR angiographic studies, consisting of axial two-dimensional (2-D) phase-contrast, coronal 2-D phase-contrast, and coronal 2-D time-of-flight acquisitions, were performed within 48 hr of conventional arteriography. The studies were done to evaluate possible renovascular hypertension (n = 25) or potential donor nephrectomy (n = 8… CONTINUE READING
