This study developed a 3D MRI technique of abdominal aorta aneurysm which can achieve high isotropic resolution and good blood suppression within a clinically acceptable scan time using DANTE prepared SPACE sequence. The feasibility of using DANTE-SPACE to differentiate thrombus components and the ability to identify inflammation with USPIO contrast agents was demonstrated. These methods can potentially improve patient risk stratification.
