Magnetic Resonance Angiography in the Evaluation of Peripheral Arterial Disease

Abstract

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) prevalence increases with the aging population and is a marker of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis involves utilization of noninvasive tests such as the ankle brachial index, duplex ultrasound, and advanced modalities such as computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). MRA offers distinct advantages compared with CTA in patients with PAD undergoing evaluation for revascularization.
