High quality, non-contrast MRA minimizes patient risk
An increasing awareness of the potential risks associated with gadolinium-based contrast agents has revealed the need for alternative, contrast-free MRA techniques. We provide clinicians four generations of unique, non-contrast MRA sequences that minimize risk to patients while producing exceptional images. These images are often better than those acquired with conventional contrast enhanced techniques.
FBI: Fresh Blood Imaging
Using FBI, angiograms and venograms with exceptional sensitivity of the natural blood flow can be obtained in one acquisition.
CIA: Contrast-free Improved Angiography
Superior imaging of smaller vessels, such as those in the legs, can be achieved using CIA, in order to expand the window of opportunity for evaluating early disease states.
Time-SLIP: Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse
Time-SLIP evaluates hemodynamic velocity, functional assessments, and visualization of vascular structures.
TSA: Time Space Angiography
By utilizing variable Inversion times, TSA creates non-contrast, time-resolved images with high temporal resolution.
