Abstract

Visualization of lower extremity veins with MR venography still needs improvement. The latest advancement is direct contrast-enhanced 3D MR venography which is based on display of venous system during direct injection of paramagnetic extracellular contrast agent into pedal veins. We used automated injection of contrast agent with a power injector makings this application simpler and faster, achieved to show the iliac vein compression syndrome and post-thrombotic changes of the left iliac and femoral veins.
