magnetic resonance angiography

n
(Medicine) a form of magnetic resonance imaging in which either the injection of a magnetic resonance contrast agent or the movement of the blood provides information of value in diagnosis. Abbreviation: MRA

Magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography
Peripheral magnetic resonance angiography scanners use a combination of ultra-fast, high-resolution imaging sequences with a panoramic table and special peripheral coil to allow coverage from the renal arteries to blood vessels in the foot in a single scan.

LOS ANGELES -- Magnetic resonance angiography evaluation of isolated vertigo is often used unnecessarily, Dr.
When using magnetic resonance angiography rather than catheter angiography we advocate the inclusion of gadolinium contrast and three-dimensional time-of-flight techniques to better demonstrate the position of the tumor relative to the carotid bifurcation.
Contrast-free imaging is particularly important because gadolinium, the most common contrast agent used for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) exams, has been directly linked to a sometimes fatal disease that occurs in patients with renal insufficiency, called Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) or Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NFD).
EPIX's initial target indication for Vasovist is for use in magnetic resonance angiography imaging of non-coronary vascular disease.
Other topics include the clinical application of noninvasive vascular imaging, magnetic resonance angiography, hemodialysis access, and bypass grafts.
Finally, findings on computed tomography (CT) of the head and neck (with thin cuts through the temporal bones and internal auditory canal), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) of the brain were all normal.
These techniques include a ventilation-perfusion lung scan in the setting of a normal chest radiograph, and magnetic resonance angiography.
ABLAVAR([R]) is a unique, single, low dose injectable magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) blood pool imaging agent for use to evaluate aortoiliac occlusive disease (AIOD) in adults with known or suspected peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
