PURPOSE Contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography is increasingly used in postinterventional imaging after implantation of endovascular stents. The main limitations are stent-related artifacts compromising the visibility of the stent lumen. The aim of this in vivo study is the evaluation of contrast-enhanced MR angiography imaging characteristics of the carotid Wallstent. MATERIALS AND METHODS The carotid arteries of 29 patients were examined with contrast-enhanced MR… CONTINUE READING
