The variety of MR angiography strategies can be applied to the evaluation of vascular disease in the aortoiliac and femoropopliteal vessels. When used appropriately, a combination of these strategies can be offered to patients with peripheral vascular disease as a safe and effective alternative to conventional angiography for planning treatment options. This article presents the clinical issues, MR techniques, and the results of relevant studies in a detailed manner pertinent to accomplishing diagnostic MR angiography in the aortoiliac and femoropopliteal segments.
