Chapter 2 Non CE MRA Methods: TOF / Inflow based – PCA – Flow Quantification
The TOF based and PCA methods are the conventional Non CE ( Contrast-Enhanced) techniques. The TOF MRA related methods show flow related enhancement to identify moving spins. The PCA method shows the blood velocity, also called VENC (Velocity Encoding) and gives a complete suppression of non-moving spins. Those methods are discussed as the parameter settings and applications. Flow Quantification is using basically the PCA method.
