Recent work shows that NC-MRA for venography (NC-MRV) can be realized by subtracting an image with all vessels suppressed from an image with only arterial vessel suppressed using motion-sensitized driven equilibrium (MSDE) preparations. However, MSDE is sensitive to the velocity of blood flow. It has difficulty to suppress the venous vessels due to the venous blood flow rather slow. A recent developed dark-blood preparation module, DANTE, has minimum flow sensitive for flow suppression. Thus, we used the MSDE and DANTE preparation together to realize NC-MRV. Preliminary in vivo studies demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed technique for NC-MRV.
