We assessed an improved version of the single injection multi-station bolus chase MRA technique known as Shoot and Scoot (SNS) in a symptomatic population of patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease of the lower limbs. By enabling a faster bolus chase, SNS permitted to reduce venous contamination at infrapopliteal arterial vasculature while preserving spatial resolution compared to standard multi-station peripheral MRA methods, and preserving SNR compared to multiple injection approaches to imaging the peripheral vascular tree.
