We describe a system which forms MR angiographic images at high speed. Multiple axial sections are imaged sequentially using a 2DFT GRASS sequence with TR/TE 50/15 ms, 64 phase encodings per image. Reconstruction and projection of each image are performed immediately (within 220 ms) after data for that image are acquired. The projection angiogram is constructed line by line as the scan progresses, thereby totally eliminating any additional time required for reconstruction and projection. © 1990 Academic Press, Inc.
