What is an CT Peripheral Angiogram Scan?
A CT Peripheral Angiogram scan is a minimally invasive procedure used to detect blockages or narrowing of the arteries in the limbs. The test is performed by injecting a contrast material into the artery and then taking X-ray images of the area. CT Peripheral Angiogram scans are often used to diagnose peripheral artery disease (PAD), which can lead to pain, numbness, and other symptoms in the legs and feet. The procedure is also sometimes used to evaluate blood flow to the limbs after a heart attack or stroke. CT Peripheral Angiogram scans are generally safe and well-tolerated, but there is a small risk of allergic reaction to the contrast material.
When is CT Peripheral Angiogram Prescribed?
CT Peripheral Angiogram scans are recommended because they provide highly detailed images of the arteries in question. This allows doctors to accurately diagnose PAD or other conditions that could be causing symptoms such as pain or numbness in the limbs. The test is also minimally invasive, and it can be used to monitor any changes or blockages that may occur over time in patients with PAD. Finally, CT Peripheral Angiograms are generally safe and well-tolerated by most patients.
