Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is an accepted modality for arterial imaging of the lower extremities. Lower extremity MRA (LE-MRA) primarily relies on subtracted gadolinium-enhanced three-dimensional spoiled gradient echo sequences. The modality has evolved with the evolution of low-dose time-resolved gadolinium-enhanced angiography sequences. LE-MRA has also benefited from the continued evolution of noncontrast angiography techniques, enabling safe and accurate arterial imaging in patients with renal insufficiency.
