Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a common but elusive illness that can lead to fatal pulmonary embolism and sudden death. Effective treatment of DVT requires accurate evaluation of thrombus distribution and stage. n this work, we further accommodated the DANTE-SPACE technique to the deep vein system and conducted preliminary clinical validation. Experiment results demonstrated that DANTE-SPACE could provide excellent venous blood signal suppression and definitive thrombus detection and the technique may outperform conventional SPACE, MPRAGE, and and become a non-contrast alternative to CEMRV for the diagnosis of DVT.
