Abstract

Intraarterial injections of small doses of gadopentetate dimeglumine were combined with a fast spoiled-gradient-echo magnetic resonance (MR) sequence to obtain real-time projection angiographic images of the rabbit aorta and canine coronary arteries. Arterial filling and washout, as well as venous and perfusion phases, were clearly displayed, demonstrating that arterial fluoroscopy in which an MR technique is used is feasible.
