Hi! MR angiography is an MRI study of the blood vessels. It utilizes MRI technology to detect, diagnose and aid the treatment of heart disorders, stroke, and blood vessel diseases. MR angiography is a very useful way of finding problems with blood vessels and determining how to best to treat those problems.
The radiologist or technologist should know about if she has any metal also whether she has ever had a bullet in your body, or if she has had a joint replacement. The radiologist will explain everything before procedure. She can eat normally before the exam. The patient is placed on a special table and positioned inside the opening of the MRI unit. Depending on the type of exam being done, the total time needed can range from 10 to 60 minutes.
The technologist will make her as comfortable as possible, but at times the magnet may be within a few inches of your face. For those who become very uncomfortable when enclosed in a small space, a mild sedative is nearly always effective.
