Abstract

During the past decade, noninvasive CTA and MRA imaging techniques have replaced catheter angiography for evaluation of the renal arteries. This article reviews techniques for optimizing renal MRA and CTA, assesses the advantages and limitations of MRA and CTA, and provides the current indications for renal vascular imaging including renal artery stenosis screening. New and future developments in these rapidly evolving techniques are also discussed.
