What do you advise if I'm going to get a cerebral angiography in 2 day?

Angio: If you have already discussed the risks/benefits of the procedure, and you and your team have concluded that this test is appropriate for your clinical situation, there is not much to do other than go for the appointment. They will probably tell you to take nothing by mouth after midnight, but other than that there is no prep on your part necessary. If you still have concerns, call your doc. ...Read more

Does Cerebal Angiogram and MRI angiography both have same accuracy to detect a AVM? I perfer to have less invasive MRI Angiography.

Does Cerebal Angiogram  and MRI angiography both have same accuracy to detect a AVM? I perfer to have less invasive MRI Angiography.

Almost: A conventional cerebral angiogram is still considered the gold standard, but there is about a 1% chance of stroke from the procedure, plus other risks from needing to enter an artery. There is an advantage that if you have a treatable lesion, they can do a procedure during the angiogram. Otherwise, I almost always recommend the MR-angiogram or CT-angiogram because there is almost no risk. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: magnetic resonance angiography?

Blood vessel imaging: The most simple description is: an MRI study that has been adjusted to specifically look at the anatomy associated with or involving the major blood vessels of the body. This usually involves a contrast agent (dye) that is injected during the study and a very specific protocol for the MRI (program). It gives the radiologist a lot more information regarding the blood vessels than a regular mri. ...Read more
