A technique is described for taking images generated from an MRI acquisition done with contrast administration and converting the image data into a single image which portrays the time of arrival (TOA) of the advancing contrast bolus. The TOA image allows distinction of arterial from venous structures based on their different arrival times. The quality of the results depends on significantly on the temporal fidelity of the underlying MRI acquisition method.
