Mobile vascular cine-MRI: male, 52-years-old, stage 27, 1,838 km. A1: MR localizer sagittal, A2,3: FLASH transversal: Automatic functional measurement of common right carotid artery diameter just below carotid bifurcation (1). Left carotid artery (2), right deep jugular vein (3). B1: MR localizer, B2: phase contrast transversal: Ascending aortic (1) diameter and flow is measured by specific velocity-encoded (venc) MR imaging. Descending aorta (2), pulmonary artery (3), lung (4). B3: graphic depiction of aortic pulsatile flow (ml/second). C1: MR localizer coronal, C2: phase contrast transversal: Distal descending aortic (1) diameter and flow is measured by specific velocity-encoded (venc) MR imaging just above the aortic bifurcation. Inferior vena cava (2), liver (3), intestines (4). D1: FLASH transversal: Functional measurement of superficial right femoral artery diameter just below bifurcation (1), left femoral artery (2). D2: Manual diameter measurement (1), D3: Automatic diameter measurement (1). Femoral veins (2).
