OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to summarize current common techniques and indications for pediatric abdominopelvic MR angiography and strategies for optimizing them to achieve successful outcomes. We also discuss newer MR angiography techniques, including whole-body imaging and blood pool contrast agents, as well as various approaches to reducing the need for anesthesia in pediatric MRI. CONCLUSION. Pediatric body vascular imaging presents a unique set of challenges that require a tailored approach. Emerging pediatric abdominopelvic MR angiography techniques hold promise for continued improvement in pediatric body MR angiography.
