MRA of the Renal Arteries $1,225

Most Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) exams benefit from the use of an injection of intravenous contrast. This is included in the quoted price. In some cases this contrast is either unnecessary or contra-indicated. If contrast is not used, we would deduct $300 from this fee. If the dye is utilized, we may require you to have a blood test before this procedure. The type of contrast agent we use has been validated to be one of the safest types available.

MRA of the renal arteries allows for assessment of the blood vessels that supply the kidneys. This includes the aorta and both right and left renal arteries. Pathologies that may be visulaized include stenosis (narrowings), blockages, malformations or aneurysms. A 3-dimensional model of these arteries is generated, allowing for rotation in any direction for a very thorough assessment. A typical renal MRA exam will take 30 minutes.
