Injection of fluid through catheters positioned selectively in arteries results in substantial increases in flow and pressure in those arteries for the duration of the injection. This produces certain artifacts which may lead to misinterpretation of the arteriograms. Apparent direction of flow in major vessels, extent of collateral circulation, distribution… CONTINUE READING
