Gadofosveset-enhanced MR Angiography of Carotid Arteries: Does Steady-State Imaging Improve Accuracy of First-Pass Imaging?

Gadofosveset-enhanced MR Angiography of Carotid Arteries: Does Steady-State Imaging Improve Accuracy of First-Pass Imaging?

6 novembre 2014

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of gadofosveset-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography in the assessment of carotid artery stenosis, with digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as the reference standard, and to determine the value of reading first-pass, steady-state, and “combined” (first-pass plus steady-state) MR angiograms.
