Flow measurements using Phase Contrast MRI in the present of stents is of clinical relevance, especially in vessels with no alternative to measure elsewhere. Here, we evaluate 4 different stent types in a pulsatile flow phantom using both 2D and 4DFlow including different acquisition schemes for 4DFlow, e.g. 1 slab whole-volume, 1slab with reduced number of slices and multislab whole-volume. The stent made of platinum-iridium was the only stent under evaluation that allowed in-stent accurate net flow measurements for both 2D and 4DFlow (1 slab with reduced number of slices and multislab whole-volume).
