The increased signal-to-noise ratio at 3.0 T holds promise for high-spatial resolution renal magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). Today, state-of-the-art renal MRA is feasible with submillimeter isotropic spatial resolution in less than 20 seconds acquisition time with sufficient signal-to-noise ratio. This article explains the fundamentals of 3.0-T imaging that are essential for renal MRA, with a focus on the clinical implications. Protocol and imaging recommendations are given based on the… CONTINUE READING
