CT Angiography of the Entire Aorta

CT Angiography of the entire aorta is a diagnostic procedure that enables physicians to thoroughly examine the aorta using contrast medium. Contrast medium is injected into a vein to better visualize structures within the body, allowing physicians to clearly see the aorta on CT images.

CT Angiography of the Entire Aorta may be recommended in various situations, including:

  • Suspicion of aortic aneurysm: if there is suspicion of aortic dilation (aneurysm), CT angiography can provide a detailed depiction of the size and shape of the aneurysm.
  • Assessment of atherosclerosis: CT imaging can assist in evaluating the presence and severity of atherosclerosis, plaque buildup on the walls of the aorta.
  • Disease monitoring: patients with known aortic diseases may undergo regular CT scans to monitor disease progression and treatment effectiveness.
