What is multiphase?

Multiphase is a medical imaging technique. It usually involves taking images at multiple points in time, as IV contrast dye moves through veins and arteries. 

Each “phase” of the scan includes a set of images as contrast dye passes through specific blood vessels. A multiphase exam can be performed with MRI, CT, or  angiography. It might be used to diagnose a stroke, heart issues, or to assess the liver.
