Visceral arterial diseases should be evaluated before and after endovascular interventions. We compared ultrashort TE (UTE) and steady-state free precession (SSFP) time-SLIP MRAs regarding their signal decay in pulsatile flow phantoms reflecting stenosis, aneurysm, and metallic stents. In all phantom models, UTE time-SLIP MRA provided superior visualization of target lumens to SSFP time-SLIP MRA. UTE time-SLIP MRA demonstrated minimal signal decay except for in-stent lumen of a stainless-steel stent. Our results indicated robustness of UTE time-SLIP MRA for intra-voxel spin dephasing caused by accelerated flow at the stenosis, turbulent flow in the aneurysm and susceptibility effects from metallic devices.
