Three-tesla MRI biphasic angiography: a method for preoperative assessment of the vascular supply in renal tumours--a surgical perspective

World Journal of Urology, 05/04/2012

3TMRA gives detailed information about the renal vasculature including its topographical anatomy. With MRI, small aberrant vessels are more frequently missed than with CTA. CTA remains the gold standard. However, MRA may be used for planning of laparoscopic operations. The quality of the 3D reconstruction is highly depending on the skills of the radiologist.
