Air gap technique for digital subtraction angiography of the extracranial carotid arteries.


The technique of applying an air gap between the patient and the x-ray detector reduces scattered radiation from the patient's neck sufficiently to allow performance of DSA of the extracranial carotid arteries with the antiscatter grid removed. When compared with the conventional grid technique, air gap allows 25 to 88% reduction of mA without increasing… (More)
