syngo Native – Non Contrast MR Angiography Techniques

With the need to carefully consider the risk versus benefit of contrast agent administration, following the advent of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF), as well as the need to perform cost effective MR studies, there is a demand for improved methods for performing MR angiography using intrinsic rather than extrinsic contrast mechanisms.

To address this need, the image acquisition technique Native has been developed, which encompasses two new methods of non contrast MRA, exploiting new ways for generating angiographic contrast. The two varieties are Native TrueFISP and Native SPACE – the former being more appropriate for abdominal imaging and the latter for peripheral arterial evaluation.
