Investigations including CT angiography, color Doppler ultrasonography, MRI, MR angiography, endoscopic ultrasonography, gastric emptying scintigraphy, and esophago-gastroduodenal radiography may be used for the diagnosis.
Intra-voxel dephasing can be reduced using smaller voxels, shorter TE, and flow compensation.6 TOF sequences with shorter TEs have reduced extent of spatial encoding sequence gradients and are therefore less sensitive to high-order motion that leads to better assessment of stenosis.16 Smith et al.17 proposed that TOF MR angiography with TE of 5.1 ms improved signal intensity recovery compared with TE of 6.5 ms.
