MR Angiography of the Head and Neck
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) precisely depicts the brain as well as the flow and state of the blood vessels. MRI scans deliver a very detailed image of the location and extent of the abnormalities in your brain. Magnetic resonance imaging produces more exact results when compared with computed tomography (CT) while avoiding the unnecessary application of X-rays.
Thanks to angiography, we can display the blood vessels of the brain and neck. By administering a contrast agent, phenomena such as vascular abnormalities become very visible. For example, constrictions (stenoses) of cerebral vessels and bulges of cerebral arteries (aneurisms) can be detected or ruled out. In cases of stenoses of the neck vessels supplying the brain (carotid arteries), duplex sonography can improve the quality of the results.
