MRA with continuous table movement is an easy applicable technique for imaging peripheral vessels without the need for planning different steps and FOV positioning, thus examination time can be reduced considerably. However, the reduced spatial resolution compared to standard step-by-step MRA is a drawback especially in the most distal calf vessels which leads to under- or overestimation of findings. New data acquisition techniques help to overcome the technical limitations present today.
