Main MRI examinations with injection of contrast media
How will the exam be performed
MR Angiography is an examination of blood vessels (mainly arteries). After injecting a contrast medium intravenously, MR Angiography can be used to examine most of the large arteries, but generally focuses on just a few such as the aorta, leg arteries, carotids, etc.
MR Arthrography is an examination of bone joints. The contrast medium is injected directly into a joint (knee, shoulder, etc.).
Central Nervous System
Examinations of Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord) are performed after a contrast medium is injected intravenously. This is one of the main indications for MRI.
Pelvic Abdominal examinations mainly concern the liver, pancreas and genital organs (uterus, prostate). The contrast medium is injected intravenously.
