Investigation of how the patients experience whole body MRA. After the WB-MRA the patients will fill in a questionnaire, that contains questions about the WB-MRA procedure and how the patient felt during the examination.

We expect that the patients will report a high degree of satisfaction with the WB-MRA procedure, with little discomfort.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patient acceptance of Whole body MRA

Estimated Enrollment: 81
Study Start Date: November 2007
Study Completion Date: July 2009
Detailed Description:

WB-MRA is performed in patients referred for conventional x-ray based angiography. The WB-MRA is performed first in all patients.

After both examinations are completed the patients will be asked to fill in a questionnaire containing questions about their experience of the 2 procedures.

We will then compare the results for the procedures.
