Abstract

Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is now a widely accepted technique used to characterize vascular pathology such as stenosis, dissection, fistula, and aneurysms. Magnetic resonance techniques are increasingly driving clinical decision making by vascular physicians. The physics behind MRA can contribute to the general understanding and interpretation of the anatomic images. We seek to provide a window into how magnetic resonance images are generated, which techniques may be employed, and the potential advantages and limitations of various techniques and to discuss the future role MRA may have for the vascular physician.
