Abstract

Lower extremity computed tomography angiography (CTA) is an effective, noninvasive, and robust imaging modality that is being used increasingly to evaluate patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). It is important for vascular and interventional radiologists, and vascular surgeons to be familiar with the strengths and limitations, diagnostic accuracy, and practical application of lower extremity CTA. In this article, we review the technical principles of image acquisition, visualization techniques to effectively interpret the large volumetric datasets generated, and the current practical application of lower extremity CTA with respect to PAOD.
