Abstract

We succeeded in distinctly imaging the calf veins using Gd-enhanced subtraction MR venography (Gd SMRV). Gd SMRV was performed in 15 normal legs, 33 varicose legs and 22 legs with suspected deep venous thrombosis. Conventional venography was performed in 46 legs in all. The deep veins of the calf, greater saphenous vein, and intramuscular veins had high rates of demonstration in normal legs and varicose legs (84, 100%, 87, 97%, 67, 73%). The varices were also well demonstrated (100%). When Gd SMRV was compared with conventional venography in terms of diagnosis of calf venous thrombosis, the sensitivity of this method was 100%, specificity was 92% and accuracy was 93%. We found high intensity thrombi on precontrast images in most cases, a finding that was important for the diagnosis of local thrombi. This method was non-invasive and was able to clearly visualize veins in the calf. We concluded that Gd SMRV was useful for calf venous disease, especially calf venous thrombosis.
