Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Image quality of gadofosveset trisodium-enhanced magnetic resonance venography (MRV) of the upper extremities was evaluated.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

Imaging was performed using a 3D Fast Low Angle Shot gradient recalled echo sequence (3D FLASH) and 3D gradient echo Volumetric Interpolated Breath-hold Examination with fat suppression (3D VIBE FS). Image quality was evaluated by two raters.

RESULTS:

3D FLASH sequences demonstrated good image quality for depiction of the central venous system; 3D VIBE FS sequences showed good image quality for peripheral veins.

CONCLUSION:

MRV using Gadofosveset trisodium enables good quality depiction of the venous system of the upper extremities.
