CT angio chest

ct angio chest

Arterial and venous postmortem CT angiography of the thorax and abdomen. Coronal postmortem maximum intensity projections obtained after arterial (a) and venous (b) injections of contrast medium show a detailed depiction of the thoracoabdominal vasculature. Note that arterial enhancement decreases during the 15-minute interval between the two injections, which allows almost distinctly separate imaging of the arteries and veins.
