The Computed Tomography (CT) based Angiography of the thoracic aorta 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 thoracic aorta (major blood vessel supplying blood to the body) and blood flow patterns in it to help detect and diagnose blood vessel disorders and blockages, if any.
Why Get Tested
- To evaluate the physical trauma or injury to the thoracic aort;
- To evaluate any weak points of the blood vessels or aneurys;
- To check for blockages in blood vessels due to plaque deposition or blood clot formatio;
- To assess any abnormal formation and interconnections of blood vessel;
- To study the tumors (abnormal growth) and blood supply to tumor;
- To determine the presence of haemorrhage or internal bleeding
- 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.
