What Is MR Venography?

Magnetic resonance venography (MRV) is a noninvasive medical procedure used to visualize veins. An MR venogram uses the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner along with special computer software that captures images of blood cells as it passes through the veins. These images help diagnose blood clots, strokes, or other disease processes.

Before undergoing an MRI, alert your doctor if you have implants, metal clips, or other metallic objects in your body as these can be affected by the magnet. In some cases, an MR venogram may be done if you have metal devices such as a cardiac pacemaker.

Prior to a MR venogram appointment, patients should follow the protocols given to them by their referring physician and our team of imaging experts at SJRA. No metal objects should be worn to the appointment including jewelry, belts, hairpins, zippers, and so forth. In some cases, you may have to avoid eating or drinking a few hours prior to your appointment. If you have any questions, reach out to your referring physician or our team at SJRA.
