The development of multidetector CT technology and helical scanning techniques has revolutionized the use of CT for primary diagnostic evaluation of the abdominal vasculature, particularly the arterial system. CT angiography has numerous benefits relative to conventional catheter angiography, and has largely replaced catheter-based techniques in many clinical algorithms. This pictorial review and update will cover important technical principles related to modern CT angiography (including…

TLDR
Lower extremity CTA is most commonly performed in patients with peripheral artery disease or trauma affecting the lower extremities, it also plays a role in the workup of nonischemic etiologies such as vasculitis, aneurysms, and congenital vascular malformations.
CT angiography and 3D imaging in aortoiliac occlusive disease: collateral pathways in Leriche syndrome
TLDR
This article seeks to familiarize radiologists with the most common patterns of aortoiliac occlusion and associated arterial collateral pathways utilizing CT angiography.
MDCT and MR imaging of the jejunum.
TLDR
The goal of this pictorial review is to outline the current imaging techniques that are used to investigate the jejunum and illustrate the most common conditions that affect this small bowel segment with a specific focus on MDCT and MR imaging using enterography or enteroclysis.
Three-dimensional MDCT angiography of splanchnic arteries: pearls and pitfalls.
TLDR
The role of 3D MDCT angiography in the detection and assessment of abnormalities of splanchnic arteries as well as the limitations of the different reconstruction techniques are discussed.
Radiogenic risk assessment for abdominal vascular computed tomography angiography
TLDR
The wide range of doses indicates the likelihood that patients have been receiving avoidable radiation exposure, and their being potential for mitigation of cancer incidence risk through further optimisation of procedures.
Small Bowel MDCT
Imaging has always been critical in the evaluation of the small bowel, because of poor accessibility with conventional endoscopic techniques. And also new endoscopic imaging methods (i.e. capsule
Imaging of Vascular Injuries of the Extremities: Emergency and Trauma in MSK Radiology
TLDR
The diagnosis and characterization of vascular injuries of the upper and lower extremities using MDCTA including derived multiplanar reconstructions, maximum intensity projection, and three‐dimensional volume rendering techniques are discussed.
Computed Tomography Angiography for Preoperative Thoracoabdominal Flap Planning.
TLDR
Patients who undergo CTA before DIEP flap have better clinical outcomes with shorter operative times and hospital length of stay, which can decrease overall associated health care costs.
Abdominal CT with model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR): initial results of a prospective trial comparing ultralow-dose with standard-dose imaging.
TLDR
MBIR shows great potential for substantially reducing radiation doses at routine abdominal CT and both FBP and ASIR are limited in this regard owing to reduced image quality and diagnostic capability.
CT enterography at 80 kVp with adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction versus at 120 kVp with standard reconstruction: image quality, diagnostic adequacy, and dose reduction.
TLDR
In patients weighing less than 160 lb, CT enterography examinations at 80 kVp with 30% ASIR produce diagnostically acceptable image quality with an average CTDI(vol) of 6.15 mGy and an average effective dose of 4.60 mSv.
