So far preclinical 4D-Flow MRI has not been able to deliver an analysis of complex flow due to low resolution. The presented framework and improvements allow high quality data acquisitions with a reduced measurement time and the possibility to visualize regional flow abnormalities. An automatic magnitude segmentation in every timeframe combines anatomic information with the underlying blood flow showing even small vessels. It will draw new conclusions in mouse models of cardiovascular diseases as a valuable tool for preclinical researchers.
