Mra Liver With And Without Contrast
A few months ago, I started feeling off balance, dizzy almost. Had an MRI without contrast & mra done, found I had a small lesion, is this the cause?
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
Is a 3.0 tesla mra better test than 1.5 tesla mra with and without contrast in detecting and diagnosing 1 to 2 mm cerebral aneurysm(s)?
Yes: magnet strength is highrGet a more detailed answer ›
If a person had a normal with and without contrast 1.5 tesla mra, should he do 3.0 tesla mra to be sur that 1 to 2 mm cerebral aneurysm was not mised?
Not necessarily: MRA's ability to detect a 1-2 mm aneurysm depends on contrast vs. TOF technique, number of phase-encoded steps, and acquisition parameters. Field strength is another factor, but the data are equivocal for studies of coiled cerebral aneurysms (limited for de novo detection). See your neurologist or neurosurgeon for further discussion. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00234-008-0413-7 ...Read more
Is an open mra and mrv good enough to diagnose any abnormalities with the blood vessels even without contrast?
For the most part: Both mr angiography (mra) and mr venography (mrv) of the head are usually performed without contrast dye using a special technique that can "see" flowing blood without IV contrast. Open mri? Depends on the machine. Some newer MRI scanners have larger openings without being "open, " and these strike better balance between patient comfort and image quality. May still miss small vascular lesions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ive had an MRA 'TOF' without contrast dye of the brain done recently. Will this pick up and potential unruptured aneurysms?
Is siemens avanto "MRA with and without contrast SPGR post coil protocol" considered 1.5t or 3.0t mra? Can both detect 1 to 2 mm cerebral aneurysm
In ruling in or out cerebral aneurysm is mra study enogh or MRI with and without contrast is also needed with mra for better accuracy?
Best tests: Cta and mra studies should readily demonstrate any significant aneurysm. If such a lesion is congenital and small, it may be missed, but ruptures tend to occur when larger than 0.9 mm, and the others would just be followed. If you possess uncontrolled high blood pressure, an acquired aneurysm, called charcot-bouchard, could result in hemorrhage, so watch your bp. ...Read more
