Hello everyone, my mother had an ultrasound which found 2 partially blocked arteries. Her doctor ordered an MRI w/contrast but the MRI tech wouldn't risk the procedure due to her reduced kidney function and a history of negative side effects from the contrast/dyes. The tech said her renal system could shut down and he wouldn't risk it. Is there any other test that may be effective? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks
