Although similar in principle to spiral CT angiography, contrast-enhanced MRA holds considerable advantages. Beyond the absence of ionizing radiation and the ability to depict large vascular territories in three-dimensional imaging volumes, harmful side effects of the paramagnetic contrast agents used for the MRA examination are considerably less frequent and less severe than those associated with the iodinated contrast used in CT angiography. Paramagnetic contrast agents are nonnephrotoxic and have a low incidence of anaphylactoid reactions [8].

The use of short TRs is mandatory to avoid T2* effects and can only be achieved using the most powerful gradient systems. The short TR and echo time reduce susceptibility artifacts and lead to extremely short data acquisition times. Reductions in acquisition time by a factor of two or three can be achieved at similar temporal and spatial resolution in comparison with conventional segmented k-space gradient echo imaging. Other potential applications could be the real-time assessment of intimal flap movement in aortic dissection delineating the relationship to branch vessels and possible occlusion of these during systolic or diastolic phase.
