For: Primary CNS angiitis, an mra may pick up or suggest diagnosis. Not used as standard for gca diagnosis, rather temporal artery biopsy.

No: Arteritis would not show up on mri. The MRI help exclude other causes of acute blindness. Arteritis is best evaluated on mra, a specialized form of MRI specifically designed for the blood vessels.
