Magnetic resonance imaging allows significant freedom in selecting the orientation and position of a tomographic section. However, it can nonetheless be challenging to determine quickly and efficiently the correct parameters required to image a targeted anatomic structure that may lie at an oblique angle In the imaging volume. We describe a three-point tool in which a) the user interactively selects three points from an anatomic structure of interest during live MR fluoroscopy; b) adjustments to pulse sequence are calculated to image the tomographic section defined by the three points; and c) the section is then immediately imaged fluoroscopically. The tool allows quick localization of, for example, longitudinal images of specific arterial structures.
