From: Role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance in the guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology

Recommendations for evaluation of carotid artery stenosis Classa Levelb Page
 Duplex ultrasound, CT-angiography, and/or MRA are indicated to evaluate carotid artery stenosis. I A 11
Recommendations for diagnosis of symptomatic chronic mesenteric ischaemia Classa Levelb Page
 When Duplex ultrasound is inconclusive, CT-angiography or gadolinium-enhanced MRA are indicated. I B 19
Recommendations for diagnostic strategies for renal artery stenosis Classa Levelb Page
 MRA (in patients with creatinine clearance >30 mL/min) is recommended to establish the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis. I B 21
Recommendations for diagnostic tests in patients with lower extremity artery disease Classa Levelb Page
 Duplex ultrasound and/or CT-angiography and/or MRA are indicated to localize lower extremity artery disease lesions and consider revascularization options. I A 26
