The Computed Tomography (CT) based Angiography of the renal arteries is an imaging procedure in which the rotating beams of X-rays are used after injection of a contrast material to create a detailed image of the blood vessels of the kidneys and blood flow patterns to help detect and diagnose blood vessel disorders and blockages, if any.
Why Get Tested
- • To evaluate the blood vessels of the kidneys in case of physical trauma or injury • To evaluate the weak points in blood vessels or aneurysm • To check for blockages in blood vessels due to plaque deposition or blood clot formation • To assess any abnormal formations of the blood vessels • To study any suspected tumors (abnormal growth) and blood supply to tumors • To determine the presence of haemorrhage or internal bleeding • To assess the functioning of the kidneys • To plan and to check the efficacy of various treatment procedures including kidney transplants
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the X-ray.
