Recently, a novel technique using triggered non-selective refocused 3D SPACE or called NATIVE SPACE was shown to improve spatial resolution and speed. In this abstract, we propose to use magnetization transfer pulse and fat saturation pulses to help suppress the background tissue and fat signal to further improve the images of the vessels after subtractions.
