About the Scan- Face and Neck MR Angiography

SMIL offers MR (magnetic resonance) angiography or MRA, a medical test that assists SMIL radiologists in identifying medical conditions related to blood vessels. MR Angiography of the face and neck creates a detailed image of your blood vessels to identify health problems.

Unlike traditional angiograms, SMIL radiologists use magnetic resonance angiography which is a far less invasive and a less painful procedure. MR angiography uses a magnetic field, radio waves and a contrast material to produce detailed images of blood vessels throughout the body. This procedure does not use ionizing radiation, and can effectively detect, diagnose and aid in the treatment of heart disorders, stroke and other blood vessel diseases.

During a face and neck MR angiography, you lie flat inside the imaging scanner, which is a large, tunnel-like tube that takes pictures of the face and neck.

Learn more about how to prepare for a MR angiography scan in the preparations for MR angiography section.

I have to have X-rays every time I see the doctor due to the injuries. And I go here because he can access these fries office. This time it was a much better experience. It seems though they aren’t all on theme page. I always request a Cd of the XRays and the X-ray tech gave nepme a green card and said give it to the receptionist, she’ll write you name on it and hold it al the counter so she remembers she is waiting for it.....I tell thee ratio it’s this, she takes a sticky note , writes my last name on it and places it on her desk which is floating in papers.....the card you take out there is bright green and about 5x8...if she’d kept that she could hand it it worked out....but why doesn’t the left hand know what the right hand is doing. And which one of them intend the X-Ray tech was the manager of the department......so

The staff was so very kind and helpful! The X-ray room was rather small though. It was hard to get in with my knee scooter. But the tech was so kind to help me navigate and move things. Everyone was great!
