MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography)

MRA is an MRI, which provides detailed images of the blood vessels. It is particularly useful in evaluating the carotid arteries in the neck, the Circle of Willis in the brain, and the abdominal aorta and its branches. It can be used to check for blockages, stenosis or aneurysms. It is often used to evaluate the renal arteries in patients with elevated blood pressure. An injection of contrast material is usually required to visualize the blood vessels. The procedure is painless, and the magnetic field is not known to cause tissue damage of any kind.
