Abstract

Vascular disease, whether it be atherosclerosis, inflammatory, or hereditary vasculitide, is a systemic disorder with disease in one territory predictive of disease in another. Despite this, current approaches focus on single-territory assessment ignoring the global burden of disease. Advances in MRI have enabled us to surmount previous limitations and expand our approach to such conditions with the ability to simultaneously assess the entirety of the arterial tree in a single examination, allowing a staging examination as it were, of the vascular health in its totality. This review will cover the acquisition technique, reporting, clinical utility, and current evidence base for such an approach.
