Bolus-chase MR digital subtraction angiography in the lower extremity
Magnetic Resonance Angiography
A bolus-chase magnetic resonance (MR) angiographic technique performed with a prototypic stepping table and coil holder and a 15-20-mL injection of contrast material was developed to depict the entire lower extremity. Image acquisition was synchronized with passage of the contrast medium bolus through the lower extremity. Ten subjects underwent the examination, which was performed in less than 1 minute. All major arteries were well demonstrated in all cases.
