Abstract

Spiral computed tomographic angiography (CTA) coupled with three-dimensional volume-rendering image processing is a less invasive alternative to conventional catheter angiography. The technique has been used successfully in a variety of vascular diseases. In this pictorial essay, we review the CTA findings in selected cases of vasculitis. Technical considerations and the potential clinical value of this method are discussed.
