Abstract

The paper presents angiography using MRI and its clinical applications. Its physical rationale is discussed, with particular emphasis on the Time of Flight technique, or the so-called influx method used in vascular examination at the Neuroradiology Department, IPN. AngioMR is a non-invasive, relatively simple diagnostic method directly producing the image of blood vessels without contrasting agents administration and without any health risks for the patient. It seems to be an excellent complementary technique to the standard MRI examination.
