Dynamic 3D-MR-angiography for assessing rheumatoid disease of the hand-A feasibility study
European Journal of Radiology, 05/08/2012
Notohamiprodjo M et al. – Time–resolved imaging with stochastic trajectories (TWIST)–MR–angiography (MRA) facilitates fast detection of synovitis. Although dynamic MRA of the hand is inferior to static contrast enhanced sequences in assessing the number of synovitic and tenosynovitic lesions, its high temporal resolution allows for fast visual grading of disease activity and assessment of vasculitis without additional contrast material application.
