Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Evaluation of peripheral arterial disease by cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging continues to develop. Of the clinical diagnostics tests currently available, magnetic resonance angiography is well established as one of the preferred techniques for determining areas of arterial occlusive disease affecting the lower extremities. Despite this, there have been new developments in non-gadolinium based contrast-enhanced studies as well as testing done at higher field strength scanners. In the research arena, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, calf muscle perfusion imaging and atherosclerotic plaque evaluation all have made significant advancements over the last year. These techniques are gaining traction as surrogate endpoints in clinical trials of novel therapeutics aimed at alleviating symptoms in patients with peripheral arterial disease.
