CT Angiography (CTA)

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for CT systems use a series of X-ray images to create an image volume datasetthatcan slices or manipulated on any plane using advanced visualization software. The section includes computed tomography scanners, CT contrast agents, CT angiography (CTA and CCTA), CT perfusion, spectral CT (dual souce CT), and interative reconstruction dose reduction software.

A patient injuried by extreme exposure to X-ray radiation during an angiography procedure, which is included among the images in the American College of Cardiology (ACC) consensus document. Angiography skin burn.

A patient injured by extreme exposure to X-ray radiation during an angiography procedure, which is included among the images in the consensus document. Severe skin injury typically appears four to eight weeks following the exposure. In extreme cases, the ulceration can become confluent and full thickness necrosis of skin may develop, exposing underlying fat, muscle and even bone.
