IMAGING

An MRI term of art referring to an MRA–magnetic resonance angiography–technique which is based solely on the flow of unsaturated blood into a magnetised pre-saturated tissue slice. The difference between the unsaturated and presaturated spins creates a bright vascular image without needing contrast media.
