Iterative reconstruction methods can improve vessel depiction in thoracic contrast-enhanced MR angiography, particularly in small vasculature. This improvement can be ascribed to the reduced temporal footprint for iterative reconstruction compared to view sharing for standard reconstruction. An investigation of the effects of this new reconstruction on quantitative vessel characteristics found no bias in vessel diameter measurements compared to the reference.
