In 1998, Canon Medical Systems pioneered non-contrast MR imaging. Now, with over 10 years of clinical experience, Canon Medical Systems' Vantage™ systems are the only systems available with a complete suite of contrast-free MRA techniques.
Time-SLIP is an Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) variant that is typically used to depict blood vessels within a targeted region in any imaging orientation.
Time-SLIP has been evaluated for use in the renal arteries, carotid arteries, pulmonary system and portal-venous system. It produces accurate angiograms using blood as an endogenous tracer, instead of a contrast agent.
