Magnetic resonance angiography (vascular diagnostics)
Magnetic resonance angiography is a completely painless and reliable vascular imaging method. No catheter is required for this. For most examinations, a contrast medium is used so that the vessels' interior walls can be imaged clearly and precisely (please take note of our contrast medium information sheets). The resultant image is called an MR angiogram and can help to detect numerous vascular diseases.
- evaluation of the cerebral vessels (arteriosclerosis, aneurysm, arteriovenous malformations)
- examination of the aorta and the carotid arteries (aneurysm, dissection, stenosis, occlusion)
- analysis of the renal arteries, for example in the case of hypertension
- examination of the pelvic and leg arteries in the case of circulatory disorders (e.g. peripheral artery disease)
- examination of the mesenteric vessels (in the case of abdominal angina or digestive problems)
- evaluation of dialysis shunts
- examination of the arteries of the upper arm, lower arm and hand (in the case of lateral differences in blood pressure or symptoms of Raynaud’s phenomenon)
- analysis of the pulmonary vessels (e.g. in the case of pulmonary embolism)
- diagnostics of the deep leg and pelvic veins (to rule out thrombosis)
The costs for this examination are € 360.00.
Since these are private services, no reimbursement by the health insurance funds is possible.
