An MRI with contrast is an imaging test that uses magnetic waves and a contrast material to create pictures of the inside of your body. The contrast material helps doctors see certain structures more clearly.
MRI with contrast is used to look at the brain, spine, joints, and blood vessels. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as multiple sclerosis, strokes, tumors, and leaks in the blood vessels.
The test is usually safe for most people. However, there are some risks associated with it. These include allergic reactions to the contrast material and problems with kidney function.
What can an MRI with contrast show?
An MRI with contrast can show a number of things. It can help to identify tumors, inflammation, or other abnormalities. Contrast can also help to show the extent of damage from a stroke.
How is an MRI with contrast performed?
An MRI with contrast is performed by injecting a contrast agent into the patient through an IV. The contrast agent helps to provide more detailed images of the body tissues. The MRI machine then takes pictures of the area being examined. The procedure is typically performed in under an hour.
