Would temple arteritis show up on MRI with contrast? Is this the same as an mra?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: For

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

In brief: 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.
