A CT Angiography Arterial Upper Limb is an imaging test that uses a contrast medium to diagnose upper limb arterial injury.
CT angiography (CTA) has evolved into a less invasive alternative to DSA. CTA, in conjunction with standard postprocessing techniques, has enabled rapid, accurate non-invasive evaluation of the upper extremity arterial vasculature.
This imaging procedure is recommended by doctors if you have:
* Aneurysm of the upper limb artery
* Detection of an artery blockage in the upper limb
* Detection of narrowing
* Diagnosis of artery inflammation Atherosclerosis
From midnight the night before the exam, refrain from drinking or eating anything. You must bring all medical and blood reports, as well as any medications you are taking. If you are diabetic, you must stop taking your medication (insulin) under the supervision of your doctor for this scan.
You must lie supine on a table for this procedure. The cannula is inserted into your arm, and dye is injected through an IV line (90-100ML) while the scan is being performed.
After angiography IV line is removed from your arm. You have to drink water after scanning for faster removal of contrast material.
