Separate pulmonary artery and vein magnetic resonance angiography by use of an arterial spin labeling method.

A separate pulmonary vein (PV) is difficult to depict with the commonly used bright-blood magnetic resonance angiography method. Until now, no study has described the depiction of peripheral PVs without the artery. Our purpose in this study was to develop an arterial spin labeling (ASL)-based magnetic resonance angiography sequence to depict the pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
