We have made several important changes in femoral arteriography, including a slower rate, longer injection time, and the use of biplane oblique views. The long injection time has resulted in fewer repeat examinations. Biplane oblique filming of the pelvis has increased our ability to demonstrate stenoses and abnormalities, although it has not significantly increased the information content of the studies.

    Background: Most of the recently developed microcatheters for abdominal angiography still have large diameters at their trailing ends, and thus cannot be used for microcoil embolization in combination with a 3-French (F) system. Purpose: To evaluate the in vitro passage of microcoils through a...

    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...

    Background: Cerebral perfusion during carotid cross-clamping depends on collateral function of the circle of Willis. The aim of this study was to determine the value of 3D Phase-Contrast (3D PC) MR angiography in predicting pre-operatively the need of shunting. Methods: 3D PC MR angiography were...
