This article presents the case of a 55-year-old man with a personal history significant for coronary artery disease with intermittent claudication, erectile dysfunction, and absence of femoral pulses. Color Doppler scanning showed patency of femoropopliteal arterial segments with loss of the normal triphasic velocity pattern distal to the common femoral arteries, but unfortunately did not allow accurate imaging of aorta and iliac arteries. Researchers therefore performed multislice spiral computed tomography of the abdominal and pelvic vascular tree after injection of non-ionic iodide with dedicated reconstruction software.
