We have developed a cine display of postprocessed 3D MR images of the thoracic aorta. Maximum intensity projection (MIP) images of the thoracic aorta in each phase were reconstructed from consecutive 2D-cine MR data sets, and displayed in a cine loop. The postprocessed 3D MR images clearly showed the relationship between major cervical branches and aortic pathologies such as aneurysms, and cine display presented the flow pattern in the aorta. 3D-cine MR angiography seems to be useful for follow-up studies of thoracic aortic diseases especially in patients with renal dysfunction.
