Using the described strategies all relevant disease processes of the thoracic vessels can be fully depicted using contrast-enhanced three-dimensional MRA. The aorta and the major neck and arm vessels are well visualized. Vascular pathologies, such as aneurysms, dissections, and occlusions, are readily recognized. With the implementation of high-performance gradients, three-dimensional MRA of the pulmonary vasculature has become possible even in dyspneic patients. Congenital lesions, such as coarctations, are particularly well suited for analysis with these techniques.
