digital angiography

digital angiography

a technique of producing computer-enhanced radiographic images of the heart and great vessels. Before injection of contrast material through a large vein, a mask image is digitized and stored in the computer. Successive digitized images made after injection are electronically subtracted from the mask image, and the result is amplified and displayed on a video monitor. The displayed images can be recorded on videotape and stored on disk.

They cover its history, complications, placentation, pathophysiology, the use of color injection and digital angiography, determining the natural history, clinical effects, diagnosis, maternal nutrition, the role of the cervix, acute twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, feto-fetal transfusion syndrome in triplets, therapy, neonatal outcomes, monitoring, and ethical issues.
2) However, CT, digital angiography (figure 3), and magnetic resonance angiography may clearly demonstrate the aberrant position and course of the carotid arteries to better advantage.
Both studies involved relatively small numbers of women, and both tested whether estrogen replacement could slow progression of preexisting coronary-artery stenotic lesions as measured by quantitative, digital angiography The results failed to show any benefit of estrogen over placebo.
Both studies involved relatively small numbers of women, and both tested whether estrogen replacement could slow the progression of preexisting coronaryartery stenotic lesions as measured by quantitative, digital angiography The results failed to show any benefit of estrogen over placebo, and in the larger of the two studies there actually was more disease progression and worse clinical outcome among the women treated with estrogen, researchers reported at the annual scientific sessions of the American Heart Association.
De Rothschild, Paris, France commented, "After using the Philips system, we now know that this technique is already the most important development that has occurred since digital angiography was developed in 1981.
The practice is one of the few on the west coast of Florida to offer (at all three sites) the breakthrough ICG digital angiography that pinpoints the leaking blood vessels that characterize a major form of macular degeneration.
The practice has 42 board-certified radiologists and was first to introduce nuclear medicine scanning, angiography, computerized tomography, ultrasonography, stone removal from the biliary tract, digital angiography, angioplasty, MRI and PET/CT in the service area.
The contract is for the supply of digital angiography to study the heart and blood for the Regional Hospital in Kielce.
First, we needed a filmless solution that could handle the larger images that our new digital angiography equipment produces, and Heartlab had systems like that already in place at other hospitals.
An aberrant position and course of the carotid arteries can be clearly demonstrated on computed tomography (CT) (figure 1), digital angiography (figure 2), and magnetic resonance angiography.
