Abstract

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques provide noninvasive methods for the accurate depiction of the vascular morphology and anatomy. In addition, the intrinsic motion sensitivity of MRI can be used to image vessels as in phase-contrast (PC) MR-angiography or to directly acquire and quantify blood flow. Such techniques offer the unique possibility to acquire spatially registered functional information simultaneously with the morphological data within a single examination.
