Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this work was to compare Gd-enhanced breath- hold fast imaging with steady-state precession (Gd-FISP) with unenhanced time-of-flight (TOF) sequences in evaluating internal carotid arteries (ICAs). Method: Thirty patients underwent three unenhanced TOF sequences [2D traveling saturation (Travelsat); 3D tilted optimized nonsaturated excitation (TONE); TOF 3D Multislab] and two breath-hold 3D Gd-FISP sequences with automated intravenous contrast agent injection (axial and coronal). ICAs were classified as normal (no stenosis); with mild (
