PURPOSE: Aim of this study was to evaluate whether phase contrast MR angiography (PC-MRA) could provide additional functional information besides morphology in the assessment of haemodialysis fistulae. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Twenty-two patients (11 male, 11 female), aged 22-77 years, were examined. MR images were obtained with a 1.5 T Gyroscan ACS-NT (Philips, Best, Netherlands) using a high-resolution wrap-around coil. In addition to MRA blood-flow measurements were performed with a gradient-echo sequence (TR 14 ms, TE 5-5...
