MR Angiography (MRA) utilizes MR technology to provide detailed images of blood vessels. It’s able to detect, diagnose and guide the treatment of heart disorders, stroke and a variety of blood vessel diseases. A special form of IV contrast called gadolinium is often used in MR imaging to improve the quality of the images. When compared to a standard angiography, MRA uses less contrast and does not require insertion of a catheter directly into an artery. It also is a more cost-effective alternative with no significant recovery time.
