Magnetresonanzangiographie der Aorta

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Derzeit stehen dem Kliniker drei diagnostisch sehr effiziente nichtinvasive Methoden zur Darstellung der thorakalen und abdominalen Aorta zur Verfügung: die Sonographie, die Computertomographieangiographie (CTA) und die Magnetresonanzangiographie (MRA). Im Vergleich zur Sonographie hat die MRA den Vorteil, dass sie weniger untersucherabhängig ist und durch Patienten-spezifische Faktoren, wie beispielsweise Darmgasüberlagerung, nur geringfügig limitiert wird. Gegenüber der CTA hat die MRA den Vorteil, dass keine Exposition durch Röntgenstrahlen vorhanden ist und auch Patienten mit eingeschränkter Nierenfunktion problemlos untersucht werden können.
