Conventional MRI and CE-MRA have limitations in venous imaging. Recently introduced Relaxation-Enhanced MR Angiography without Contrast and Triggering (REACT) is based on 3D dual-echo generalized DIXON in combination of magnetization preparation, and has the potential to better characterize both arterial and venous signals with robust blood-tissue contrast. Comparing REACT with conventional non-contrast sequences regarding vessel depiction, REACT revealed similar results for large vessels and was superior for the assessment of small peripheral vessels.
