Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of a non-contrast MRI for the assessment of the vasculature of the lower extremity anatomical regions. Patients eligible for this study must have been referred for a clinical contrast enhanced CT scan or an invasive catheter angiography. The overall image quality and diagnostic accuracy of the non-contrast MRI will be compared to current clinical standards of care, such as contrast enhanced MRI, CT, and invasive angiography.

Summary

Heart disease can be detected in the hospital by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR)- a device that uses a large magnet. CMR is used to test how healthy the heart muscle is and how well the heart is pumping. We will test a new method to see how helpful it is to quickly get good pictures and if this is useful for testing the health of heart muscle in patients with heart disease.

Summary

Disease of the blood vessels in the legs can be detected in the hospital by Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)- this uses a device that acts like a large magnet. MRA is used to test how healthy the blood vessels are and if there are any blockages. We will test a new method to see how helpful it is to quickly get good pictures and if this is useful for testing the patients with disease of the blood vessels in other regions of the body.
