The authors developed a free-breathing black-blood coronary magnetic resonance (MR) angiographic technique with a potential for exclusive visualization of the coronary blood pool. Results with the MR angiographic technique were evaluated in eight healthy subjects and four patients with coronary disease identified at conventional angiography. This MR angiographic technique accurately depicted luminal disease in the patients and permitted visualization of extensive continuous segments of the native coronary tree in both the healthy subjects and the patients. Black-blood coronary MR angiography provides an alternative source of contrast enhancement.
