[Enhanced MR-angiography (CE-MRA) of the supraaortic arteries: dose reduction with a contrast agent of high relaxivity (Gd-BOPTA)]

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Reducing the amount of contrast medium in contrast-enhanced MR-angiography (CE-MRA) of the cervical vessels could lead to considerable cost reduction. This study investigates whether the amount of contrast medium possessing high relaxivity can be reduced without loss of diagnostic information. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a prospective study the supraaortic vessels of 40 patients were examined on a 1.5 T MR-system using 10 or 20 ml Gd-BOPTA (MultiHance). The examinations were evaluated ...
