A magnetic resonance (MR) imaging method for evaluating pulsatile pressure gradients in laminar blood flow is presented. The technique is based on an evaluation of fluid shear and inertial forces from cardiac-gated phase-contrast velocity measurements. The technique was experimentally validated by comparing MR and manometer pressure gradient measurements performed in a pulsatile flow phantom. Analyses of random noise propagation and sampling error were performed to determine the precision and accuracy of the method. The results indicate that a precision of 0.01-0.03 mmHg/cm and an accuracy of better than 8% can be achieved by using standard clinical pulse sequences in tubes exceeding 6 mm in diameter. The authors conclude that MR measurement of pressure gradients is feasible and that additional hemodynamic information may be derived from conventional phase-contrast imaging studies.
