PURPOSE To selectively visualize the hepatic vein and inferior vena cava (IVC) using three-dimensional (3D) true steady-state free-precession (SSFP) MR angiography with time-spatial labeling inversion pulse (T-SLIP), and to optimize the acquisition protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS Respiratory-gated 3D true SSFP scans were conducted in 23 subjects in combination with two different T-SLIPs (one placed in the thorax to suppress the arterial signal and the other in the abdomen to suppress the… CONTINUE READING
