What is MRI Venography?
MRI Venography is a diagnostic procedure which is used to create cross sectional images of the veins, which are then used to create a complete three dimensional image of the veins and blood flow patterns in them. The MRI scan uses strong magnetic and radio waves to create detailed and clear 3D images. Multiple images are captured during the MRI scan which can be stored on an electronic device and then further printed on a film. The whole MRI scan procedure takes about 40-60 minutes.
Preparation for MRI Venography
- Inform your doctor and technician if you are pregnant or may be pregnant before the test.
- At the time of the MRI you might be asked to remove any metallic coins, jewelry, metal wrist watches, metallic keys, dentures or hearing aids as the MRI uses strong magnetic fields
- Tell your radiologist if you have metallic implants like pacemaker, cochlear implants, aneurysm clips, neuro-stimulator, surgical staples/clips or drug implants
