CT Angiography (CTA)

Computed tomography angiography (CTA) uses a CT scanner to produce detailed images of both blood vessels and tissues in various parts of the body. An iodine-rich contrast material (dye) is usually injected through a small catheter placed in a vein of the arm. A scan is then performed while the contrast flows through the blood vessels to the various organs of the body. After scanning, the images will be processed using a special computer and software and reviewed in different planes and projections to help diagnose and evaluate blood vessel disease or related conditions, such as aneurysms or blockages.

Other conditions include brain aneurysms, carotid artery disease, artery disease, peripheral artery disease (PAD), renal artery disease, and arterial diseases of the upper and lower extremities.
