Abstract

Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging has been proved to be useful in cardiovascular investigations (Herfkens et al 1983, Soila et al 1986). In atherosclerotic pathology an accurate imaging study is important for providing opportune surgery or medical therapy (Higgins et al 1984). Angiography is considered the most sensitive diagnostic procedure but does not allow the precise characterization of stenotic lesions and presents some risks.
