Abstract

A simple method of measuring vessel diameters using intraarterial digital subtraction angiography has been designed. With a catheter in place within the vessel of interest, a segmented guide wire with known dimensions is advanced into the catheter in the area to be measured. We have used the method successfully for balloon angioplasty as well as balloon embolization.
