We could observe hemodynamic changes of the abdominal
aorta under progressive lower limb exercise modes with
rapid 3D cine PC on wide bore clinical 3.0T MR scanner.
Not excessive, but mild exercise mode is optimum for
maintaining vascular integrities by increasing the WSS
and decreasing the OSI of the abdominal aorta.
