摘要

MRI is a valuable method for evaluating thoracic vascular lesions by virtue of its non-invasiveness and multiplanar capability. In addition, ionizing radiation and iodinated contrast medium are not required. Electrocardiographically gated T1 weighted spin echo MRI remains the principal technique for demonstrating the anatomy and morphology of thoracic vascular diseases. Cine MRI allows dynamic evaluation of vascular flow, whereas MR angiography is particularly useful in the two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) display of vascular anatomy. This pictorial review illustrates the use of 2D time-of-flight MR angiography in the assessment of various thoracic vascular conditions including aortic arch and great vessel anomalies, heterotaxic syndromes, aortic dissection, aortic or arch vessel aneurysms, pulmonary embolism, pulmonary sequestration, axillofemoral bypass and tumour/vessel relationships.
