About this book

Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) continues to undergo exciting technological advances that are rapidly being translated into clinical practice. It also has evident advantages over other imaging modalities, including better patient safety compared with CT angiography and superior accuracy and contrast resolution compared with ultrasonography. With the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations, this book reviews the current role of MRA of the body. It is divided into three sections. The first section is devoted to issues relating to image acquisition technique and sequences. Individual chapters focus on flow-based MRA, contrast media, contrast-enhanced MRA, artifacts, and image processing. The second and principal section of the book addresses the clinical applications of MRA in various parts of the body, including the neck vessels, the spine, the thoracic aorta and pulmonary vessels, the heart and coronary arteries, the abdominal aorta and renal arteries, and peripheral vessels. The role of the blood pool contrast agents for the diagnosis and characterization of vascular disease is fully explored. The final section considers the role of MRA in patients undergoing liver or pancreas and kidney transplantation. This book will be an invaluable aid to all radiologists who work with MRA.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The authors discuss the use of MR angiography, including the use of contrast enhancement, in evaluating clinical applications to the vessels of the neck, chest, and abdomen as well as peripheral vessels and liver, pancreas, and kidney transplants. … This serves as an excellent reference of the use of MR angiography in evaluating vascular disease in the designated areas. It will be a valuable resource for practicing radiologists, and a useful reference for radiology trainees.” (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)

“The aim of this 168 page/13 chapter book is to introduce the latest information and updated (2009) references in the field of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) to the reader. … Numerous images are presented and are of high quality, perfectly reproduced all throughout the book. … the text does well in the radiological world and is accepted by clinicians who will be elucidated by the importance of MRA imaging in patient care.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 116, 2011)
