Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)—a noninvasive diagnostic procedure—can be used to identify blockages in the coronary arteries. In contrast to angiograms—the invasive procedure customarily used—MRI’s pose no risk to patients. Thus, to guarantee patient safety in the attempt to diagnose arterial blockages, MRI’s should replace angiograms in all attempts at diagnosing coronary blockages.

Which of the following, if true, would most support the recommendation above?

(A) Angiograms can be used to diagnose conditions other than blockages in arteries.
(B) MRI’s were designed primarily in order to diagnose blockages in the coronary arteries.
(C) Angiograms reveal more information about the nature of a blockage than an MRI can.
(D) An MRI is just as likely as an angiogram to identify an arterial blockage.
(E) Some patients for whom an angiogram presents no risk are unwilling to undergo an MRI.

D.

Says MRI is at least as effective as Angiograms and thereby supporting conclusion.

C weakens the conclusion.

But then, if MRI is as effective as angiogram, then how would D support the claim that MRI should replace angiogram...am i missing something??

Because it is less risky. It is mentioned in the argument. The question just asks additional premise to strenthen it. If it is not as effective as angiogram, even if it involves reduced risk, it cannot replace angiogram.

Yeah, if MRI is good enough, there's no reason not to use it.

The Bold part is the key here. It explicitly says that angiogram pose risk to patients.

now if MRI is as likely as angiogram to identify a blockage, why would choose angiogram and be exposed to risk.

clearly C is strengtheningsupporting the argument.
