A prospective, blinded comparison of two-dimensional time-of-flight (TOF) magnetic resonance (MR) angiography and conventional arteriography was performed in 25 patients who underwent routine arteriography for symptomatic atherosclerotic occlusive disease of the lower extremity. MR angiography was performed from the distal abdominal aorta through the popliteal trifurcation. The native arterial tree was divided into nine segments; each segment was assessed for patency (defined as stenosis
