Coronary MRA
 
 

A coronary MRA, also known as magnetic resonance angiography, examines the blood vessels in all parts of the body including the head, heart, lungs, abdomen, kidneys and lungs. An individual is examined while lying down in a large tunnel-shaped scanner. Sometimes, a contrast material (dye) is injected into the patient through a vein so the health care provider can see specific blood vessel areas more clearly. This examination can reveal aneurysms, problems with arteries and vessels and evaluate stroke and heart conditions.
