MRA Runoff (Renal Arteries to Feet) $1,875

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 $500 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.

An MRA runoff is an exam of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. This includes the lower abdominal aorta, both right and left renal, iliac, femoral and popliteal arteries and all arterial branches associated with them. Pathologies that may be visulaized include stenosis (narrowings), blockages, malformations, collateral circulation or aneurysms. Several 3-dimensional models of these arteries are generated, allowing for rotation in any direction for a very thorough assessment. A typical MRA runoff exam will take 45 minutes to 1 hour.
