Abstract

Technical reliability was determined for triggering three-dimensional (3D) contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography with MR fluoroscopy. Technical requirements for high reliability were also identified. Reliability was evaluated in 330 consecutive patient studied of the neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. Contrast material arrival was detected fluoroscopically in 325 of the 330 studies (98.5%), and the 3D sequence was successfully triggered in 321 of 330 studies (97.3%). Fluoroscopic triggering of centrically encoded 3D MR angiographic acquisitions is a highly reliable means of obtaining 3D MR angiograms with high spatial resolution.
