Improving Magnetic Resonance Angiography
“Comprehensive Imaging of Perforator Vessels and Subcutaneous Vascular Network With No-Exogenous Contrast and Non-Ionizing-Radiation Magnetic Resonance Angiography”
In this study the investigators plan to enroll a total of 25 evaluable volunteers (volunteer population) for the development and optimization of perforator imaging protocols and 50 evaluable clinical patients receiving flap procedures at OSUMC for the clinical validation of the optimized protocol. No extrinsic MR contrast agent will be injected. Clinical patients' MRI images will be evaluated independently by radiologists and plastic surgeons and compared to the clinical CTA images.
Device - MRI Scan
Study participants will be scanned with a 3.0 Tesla Phillips Ingenia CX whole body clinical MRI system located at the Wright Center of Innovation at The Ohio State University Medical Center. Anatomical and angiographic MR images will be acquired for one of the most commonly used flap surgery donor perforators including but not limited to: the deep inferior epigastric perforators (DIEP); the superior gluteal arter perforators (SGAP); the inferior gluteal artery perforators (IGAP); the thoracodors ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
