Iliac vein compression syndrome, known as May-Thurner syndrome (MTS), is a condition when the right common iliac artery constrains the flow in the left common iliac vein. Currently, ultrasound and CT venography (CTV) are the imaging modalities of choice for the diagnosis. We propose a framework to visualize iliac vein and artery utilizing contrast free MR venography and MR angiography in less than 10 minutes.
