While imaging of the central venous system has traditionally been performed with conventional venography, MR venography (MRV) has emerged as an important modality as techniques and validation studies have evolved over time. While magnetic resonance angiography has a very robust representation in the literature, the proportion representing MRV is relatively sparse. The purpose of this article is to review the indications, techniques, and dedicated studies validating MRV of the central veins of the thorax.
