PURPOSE To prospectively assess the diagnostic accuracy of nonenhanced three-dimensional (3D) steady-state free precession (SSFP) magnetic resonance (MR) angiography for detection of renal artery stenosis (RAS), with breath-hold contrast material-enhanced MR angiography performed as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was local ethics committee approved; all patients gave written informed consent. Fifty-three patients (30 male, 23 female; mean age, 58 years) with arterial… CONTINUE READING
