*The 2 centers that recruited most of the participants included them consecutively. The other centers used nonsystematic convenience samples. Therefore, the exact number of eligible patients is not known. † Reasons for exclusion are given in Appendix Table 2 . ‡ The numbers of results presented here are the sum of all computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) observers, respectively. RAS = renal artery stenosis.

Receiver-operating characteristic curves.

Curves are shown for the 3 computed tomographic angiography (CTA) observers (A through C) and the 3 magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) observers (D through F). Areas under the curve are 0.84 for CTA–A, 0.76 for CTA–B, 0.84 for CTA–C, 0.75 for MRA–D, 0.76 for MRA–E, and 0.81 for MRA–F.
