Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) using time-resolved imaging is a relatively new and increasingly popular technique. We will describe the technique utilized at our institution, Time-Resolved Imaging of Contrast Kinetics (TRICKS; GE Healthcare, Milwaukee, WI), and the parameters that can be adjusted to optimize the exam. We will review key imaging features of hemangiomas and vascular malformations in various modalities, with a special emphasis on the TRICKS appearance.
