How can magnetic resonance arteriography (MRA) help in the diagnosis of atherosclerosis?

ANSWER

This test provides images of blood vessels to show where they may be blocked. In general, doctors use MRA to look at larger arteries, such as those of the neck, rather than the small arteries supplying blood to the heart.
