Code: VV21


This session has 14 sections. First is Intro, while the second is Intraindividual Comparison of Whole Body at 1.5 and 3 Tesla in High Risk Patients with Hereditary Hyperlipidemia. Third section is High Spatial Resolution Time Resolved MR Angiography of Renal Artery Stenosis Using Gadobutrol with DSA Correlation. Fourth one is Acquisition Principles, while the fifth is MRA of the Peripheral Arteries: Comparison of Two Gadolinium Agents with Digital Subtraction Angiography. Sixth section is Steady State MR Angiography of the Peripheral Arteries Using Gadobenate Dimeglumine: A Comparison with Conventional Angiography. The seventh is High Resolution Steady State MR Angiography of the Carotid Arteries: Comparison of Three Contrast Agents for Image Quality and Diagnostic Accuracy. Eighth section is Contrast Medium Optimization, while the ninth is Steady State MR Angiography of the Carotid Arteries: Feasibility and Preliminary Clinical Experience with Gadobenate Dimeglumine Compared with CT Angiography and Conventional Angiography. Tenth one will be MR Angiography of the Peripheral Arteries with Gadobenate Dimeglumine: Comparison of Image Quality and Diagnostic Accuracy of a Standard Dose at 1.5 T vs. a Low Dose at 3 T. Eleventh section is Postprocessing, Work Flow, and Interpretation, while twelfth is Carotid Plaque Contrast Enhancement (CPCE) at Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging: Association with Inflammatory Cell Infiltration (ICI) or Cerebro- or Cardiovascular Events (CCVE). Thirteenth section is Quantitation: When and How, and the fourteenth is Q & A.
