3D-CT arteriography and 3D-CT venography: the separate demonstration of arterial-phase and venous-phase on 3D-CT angiography in a single procedure

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 2005 Mar;26(3):635-41.


Although 3D-CT angiography provides valuable anatomic information regarding lesion and their surrounding vessels and bony structures, it cannot demonstrate lesions, arteries, and veins, separately. The separate demonstration of arterial-phase 3D-CT angiography (3D-CT arteriography) and venous-phase 3D-CT angiography (3D-CT venography) will facilitate the understanding of the vascular anatomy within lesions, thus, allowing improvement of diagnostic accuracy and potentially a safer surgical approach. We describe 3D-CT arteriography and 3D-CT venography by using a multidetector row helical CT.
