Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a painless test that produces images of the inside of the body without using X-rays. During an MRI, strong magnets and radio waves work together in a magnetic field to form detailed images. MRI images may provide more details about a medical condition than X-rays, CT scans, and ultrasounds can provide.
A magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) is an MRI done on your blood vessels. During an MRA, dye (contrast material or contrast dye) is injected into your body to make the images even clearer. An MRA provides images of blood vessels and blood flow. It can be used to help diagnose and treat heart disorders, stroke, and blood vessel diseases.
Dental braces and fillings are normally not a problem.
The procedure may vary among health care providers and hospitals.
