While magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is clinically used to evaluate vascular anatomy, whereas it needs independent scan leading to a decreased throughput. We generated MRA using early phase images in the contrast-enhanced multi-arterial phase images with view-sharing technique. Aortic branches and anatomical anomalies were clearly visualized on MRA without significant differences in contrast effect and conspicuity regardless of contrast material with different r1 value (gadoterate meglumine and gadobutrol).
