Rapid developments in MR hardware and sequence design are continually improving and extending the role of MR angiography for detection and diagnosis of vascular disease. Such is the speed of technological advance that there is a strong need for an up-to-date reference that outlines the principal protocol requirements to obtain high quality diagnostic images on MR angiography. The forthcoming book entitled "MRA Protocols in Clinical Practice" endeavors to meet this need by providing detailed information on the techniques and requirements for optimal image acquisition on established as well as more recent state-of-the-art MR scanners. Each of the numerous chapters describes the aims and objectives of MRA examinations in different vascular territories, discusses the coils and optimal sequence parameters required to obtain high quality images, and points out the necessary precautions to take to avoid non-diagnostic exams. The appropriate use of contrast enhancement, discussion of the different types of available contrast agent, and details on how best to administer contrast to achieve optimal results is presented for enhanced MR angiography of both arteries and veins. Presented in a succinct, easy-to-read and practical format, the book will be a valuable addition to the MR angiography suite.
