Using contrast-enhanced MR angiography, cine phase contrast MR imaging, and flow-independent T2 measurements, MR imaging can provide both morphologic information about the degree of stenosis of the mesenteric vessels and quantitative functional information about blood flow and blood oxygen saturation in these vessels. The combination of these techniques can potentially revolutionize the diagnosis and post-treatment assessments of both acute and chronic mesenteric occlusive disease.
