Overview

Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and cerebral angiography may be helpful in the diagnosis of temporal arteritis. Findings on an magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and cerebral angiography suggestive of temporal arteritis include occlusion of the affected arteries, vasculitic changes of alternating stenotic segments or occlusion, and granulomatous inflammation in the wall of medium-size and large arteries.
