The injection of boluses of carbon dioxide (CO2) during T1-weighted magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) resuited in sharp depiction of the vascular lumen dining the performance of in vitro and in vivo animal experiments. We propose the use of the low-cost, relatively sage CO2 as a negative contrast agent for MRA and speculate on its use in future interventional MRA. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
