OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of contrast-enhanced MR imaging in the determination of disease activity in patients with Takayasu's arteritis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS High-resolution contrast-enhanced T1-weighted spinecho MR imaging using small fields of view (14-20 cm) and thin slices (4-5 mm) was performed in 26 patients with Takayasu's arteritis and 16 healthy subjects. The degree of aortic mural enhancement was assessed by measuring signal intensity and by… CONTINUE READING
