Pulmonary Embolism Detection using Ultra-Short Echo Time (UTE) MRI

January 2016 to February 2018

This study will compare the performance of two methods for imaging the pulmonary arteries in a realistic patient population. The research method being evaluated is a novel ultra-short echo time (UTE) imaging technique. The goal of this study is to evaluate overall image quality and determine how well the UTE imaging technique shows the pulmonary arteries compared with conventional MRA in patients suspected of having pulmonary embolism.
