Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
A magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA), a type of MRI scan, uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of blood vessels. During a MRA scan blood flow and conditions of blood vessel walls can be seen. Sometimes, contrast material is used to make blood vessels more visible. In many cases, MRA can provide information that cannot be obtained from a computed tomography (CT) scan, X-ray or ultrasound.MRA can detect problems with the blood vessels that may be causing reduced blood flow.
