Author information

Department of Radiology, The Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44195 USA.


In clinical diagnostic imaging there has been a rapid evolution of nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. A subset of these has proven particularly powerful when applied to the arena of noninvasive vascular imaging. This article will serve as a primer for practitioners with little prior background in magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). It will develop the first principles of magnetic resonance image creation, and establish familiarity with current imaging applications of the thoracic, abdominal, and peripheral vasculature.
