Black-blood magnetic resonance thrombus imaging (BTI) has proved successful for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with high sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy. Previous BTI method is based on a 3D variable flip angle fast spin echo (3D-vFSE) sequence, which has high specific absorption rate (SAR). DANTE-FLASH is another black-blood MR technique previously proposed for vessel wall imaging at lower extremities1. We hypothesized that DANTE-FLASH may suffice the purpose of diagnosing DVT while avoiding high SAR. This work was aimed to investigate the feasibility of using DANTE-FLASH to diagnose DVT.
