MRA of the vertebral arteries

MRA of the vertebral arteries!
Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is a non-invasive, non-ionising technique that is used to generate images of arteries and veins in order to evaluate them for stenosis, occlusions, aneurysms or other abnormalities.
MRA is often used to evaluate the arteries of the neck, and many studies have compared Duplex ultrasound (DUS), MRA and computed tomographic angiography (CTA) for carotid artery stenosis. Fewer studies have compared these imaging modalities in vertebral artery stenosis, however, CE‐MRA and possibly CTA may be more sensitive in diagnosing vertebral artery stenosis than DUS.
