CTA (Computed Tomographic Angiography)
CTA (Computed Tomographic Angiography) is a special type of imaging examination that provides detailed pictures of the body’s arteries and veins. Intravenous Iodine-based contrast is given during the study to make the arteries and veins more prominent. The series of images obtained during CT scanning can be used to create a 3-dimensional picture of the blood vessels. These detailed images can often replace the need for traditional catheter-directed angiography to determine if a patient may benefit from angioplasty or stent placement. Interventional Radiologists are specially trained to interpret these high-tech images and can diagnose disease of the arteries and veins with CTA.
