Example text

MR angiography sometimes can be of high quality, although less consistently so because of signal loss due to turbulence. MR angiography or CT angiography may be used as a screening procedure in patients at risk for aneurysm (eg, those with polycystic kidney disease) or in the evaluation of an equivocal finding on CT or MRI. 10. Extracranial carotid artery disease—Doppler sonography and MR angiography are both good screening methods, particularly when used as complementary procedures. 11. Vasculitis—MR angiography may, on rare occasions, detect lesions, but catheter angiography is more sensitive.

Floor buffers, crash carts, “sand bags” filled with BB pellets, and oxygen tanks have been pulled into the scanner, sometimes with fatal results. MRI-compatible stretchers, oxygen tanks, trays, foot-stools, intravenous poles, backboards, ventilators, monitoring devices, and fire extinguishers are commercially available. Scissors, clamps, and other surgical instruments held in the pockets of medical personnel must be removed or secured before entry into the vicinity of the MRI scanner. 18 18 ᮡ CHAPTER 3 A B ᮡ Figure 3–5.

Demyelinating disease—MRI is the test of choice. A sagittal FLAIR pulse sequence is usually added, to search for lesions of the corpus callosum, which, if found, are highly suggestive of multiple sclerosis. 8. Vascular malformations—These are best evaluated with MRI and sometimes MR angiography. 9. Aneurysms—Catheter angiography is the gold standard, although high-quality CT angiography is comparable. MR angiography sometimes can be of high quality, although less consistently so because of signal loss due to turbulence.
