3-D TOF = 3-dimensional time-of-flight; BB = black blood; CE = contrast-enhanced; DIR = double inversion recovery; FFE = fast field echo; FOV = field of view; IR = inversion recovery; MRA = magnetic resonance angiography; MS = multislice; NSA = number of signal average; PDW = proton density weighted; QIR = quadruple inversion recovery; T1W = T1-weighted; T2W = T2-weighted; TFE = turbo field echo; TR/TE = repetition time/echo time; TSE = turbo spin echo.
