What is MR Angiography Renal?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Angiography for Renal vessels helps to view the blood vessels of Kidneys. A contrast material may be injected to produce detailed pictures of blood vessels of the kidney. It uses strong magnetic field and radio waves to create images in detail. The 2D (two dimensional) or 3D (three dimensional) images can be viewed on the monitor and can be printed on the film.
