Abstract

The Development of Contrast Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Angiography represents a major success in the development of diagnostic imaging. In the short time since its inception CE–MRA, has replaced the more invasive X–ray angiography as the front line–diagnostic imaging modality. The prevalence of vascular disease in developed countries and the aging of the population has made CE–MRA a multi–billion dollar market. We discuss many of the newer approaches to CE–MRA that are reducing the scan time to allow for higher resolution scans with improved ease of use and diagnostic accuracy.
