Flow-sensitive 4D MRI of the thoracic aorta: Comparison of image quality, quantitative flow, and wall parameters at 1.5 T and 3 T
Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 06/29/2012
Strecker C et al. – Flow–sensitive 4D MRI at 3 T provided improved image quality without additional artifacts related to higher fields. Imaging at 1.5 T MRI, which is more widely available, was also feasible and provided information on aortic 3D hemodynamics of moderate quality with identical performance regarding quantitative analysis.
