One of the last drawbacks of MRA compared to conventional digital subtraction angiography was the absence of dynamic information. The implementation of view-sharing techniques helped to overcome this step. The combination of dedicated angiography coils, parallel imaging and high field strength make it possible to increase temporal resolution to less than 3 seconds per frame at good spatial resolution.
