Comparison of Doppler sonography and multidetector-row computed tomography in the imaging findings of the deep inferior epigastric perforator artery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) has been recently introduced to detect the perforator vessels. The aim of this study is to compare the MDCT with Doppler ultrasound and assess the usefulness of the MDCT for the preoperative planning. METHODS Five healthy adult men were first assessed for the perforators and marked with rubber using… (More)
