PURPOSE Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is a developing technique that provides arteriograms without the risks associated with iodinated contrast and arterial puncture or the expense of hospitalization. Prior reports have demonstrated the accuracy of peripheral vessel MRA for evaluation of the aorta through pedal vessels. This study sought to determine whether vascular reconstructions could be planned and accomplished on the basis of MRA alone. METHODS Eighty consecutive candidates for… CONTINUE READING
