Abstract

We report technical data and results in eight patients studied with spinal contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA). We used a 3.0 Tesla device, dedicated phased array coil and time resolved imaging of contrast kinetics (TRICKS) sequences to visualize the feeder vessels in patients with vascular malformations. TRICKS is a method of 3D CE-MRA providing temporal information. Thanks to its high temporal and spatial resolution and high signal/noise ratio the TRICKS optimized sequence at 3.0 T yielded very encouraging results in disclosing the origin of arteriovenous malformations.
