Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is intrinsically sensitive to flowing blood. The earliest investigators of MRI recognized that blood flow altered the intraluminal magnetic resonance signal. MRI techniques in imaging blood flow have been principally directed toward interrogation of the arterial system. However, the same techniques that have made magnetic resonance angiography such a useful clinical tool have also been applied to the venous system.
