MRI and MRA of Aortic Disease.

Author information

Cardiovascular Radiology, Iwate Medical University Hospital, Morioka, Japan.


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) play a critical role in diagnosing aortic disease such as aortic dissection and aneurysm. Additionally, the advent of contrast-enhanced MRA has allowed MRA to advance markedly and several new imaging techniques to emerge as well. While computed tomography (CT) angiography using multidetector-row CT is a significant innovation, MRA may generate more useful diagnostic information, such as on the artery of Adamkiewicz.
