In this work, the feasibility is explored for subtractionless first-pass time-resolved contrast enhanced MRA of the lower legs on 1.5T using Dixon, viewsharing and parallel imaging with high acceleration factors. Results in seven consecutive patients are analyzed and compared with the conventional subtraction method. It is demonstrated that with the subtractionless method, bulk motion artifacts are eliminated, and SNR is significantly increased.
