The authors describe a case of a focal splenic infarction with a hypervascular appearance on selective splenic arteriography. This appearance of splenic infarction has never before been reported. Angiographers should be aware of this unusual presentation of splenic infarction when they encounter an unexplained focal hypervascular area.

    Three-dimensional quantitative coronary angiography (3D QCA) has been encouraged by the increasing need to better assess vessel dimensions and geometry for interventional purposes. A novel 3D QCA system based on biplane X-ray angiograms is presented in this paper. By correcting for the isocenter...
