  1. Number of datasets that received the indicated score during visual evaluation of the MIP generated for the PC-MRA and PC-MRCA at mid-diastole. [Observer 1, Observer 2]. Scale: 1 = poor, region not visible, of no diagnostic quality; 2 = fair, region faintly visible, but not of diagnostic quality; 3 = good, complete region visible, of diagnostic quality; 4 = excellent, region clearly defined, of excellent diagnostic quality
