MRA (Magnetic Resonance Angiography)
MRA looks at the blood flow in arteries and veins to detect any narrowing or stenosis. Although performed in the same manner as an MRI, WNY Imaging is able to perform many MRA procedures without contrast. An MRA is able to look at arteries including the carotids, brain, abdominal aorta, pelvic arteries and peripheral runoff. For patients with reduced renal function some MRA studies can be provided contrast-free. No IV or contrast injection is required and can be performed with the patient placed feet-first into the scanner.
