Abstract

This study was approved by the institutional review board and was HIPAA compliant. All subjects provided written informed consent, and subject confidentiality was protected. The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the feasibility of integrating a modified elliptical centric (EC) acquisition with a continuously moving table technique to acquire high-spatial-resolution contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiograms of the peripheral vasculature. Incorporation of two-dimensional homodyne reconstruction modified the EC view order, allowing improved spatial resolution per unit time while retaining the advantage of venous suppression intrinsic to the EC technique. Spatial resolution was dynamically improved when the table reached the distal-most station. The modified view order provided improved spatial resolution in phantom examinations compared with that in standard examinations. Peripheral MR angiograms were generated in a group of 13 volunteers (eight women; five men; age range, 51-72 years; mean age, 58.5 years ± 7.9 [standard deviation]) at 1.5 T. Four arterial regions were evaluated on a five-point scale (scores ranged from 0 to 4; a score of 4 was considered excellent); venous suppression was also evaluated. The mean arterial scores exceeded 3.0 for all regions. There was no venous signal or only superficial venous signal in 10 of the 13 cases.
