Authors: Vinit Baliyan, Khalid Shaqdan, Sandeep Hedgire, Brian Ghoshhajra


Non-invasive cross-sectional imaging techniques play a crucial role in the assessment of the vascular disease processes. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) is an imaging method of choice for a wide range of vascular diseases that span across different vascular territories. A diagnostic quality CTA requires a robust imaging protocol tailored according to the physiologic state and vascular area of interest. This review article is aimed to provide an overview of the technical considerations and clinical applications of CTA.
