MR angiography by multiple thin slab 3D acquisition

Magn Reson Med. 1991 Feb;17(2):434-51. doi: 10.1002/mrm.1910170215.


Multiple overlapping thin 3D slab acquisition is presented as a magnitude contrast (time of flight) technique which combines advantages from multiple thin slice 2D and direct 3D volume acquisitions to obtain high-resolution cross-sectional images of vessel detail. Details of implementation and example images are presented.
