CT Carotid Angiogram

Ct Carotid Angiogram

A CT carotid angiogram, also known as a CT angiography (CTA) of the carotid arteries, is a specialized imaging procedure used to visualize the blood vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain. This imaging technique provides detailed information about the carotid arteries’ structure, location, and any abnormalities or blockages within them. A CT carotid angiogram is primarily used to diagnose and assess conditions related to the carotid arteries, including carotid artery stenosis (narrowing), aneurysms, dissections, and plaque buildup. It is particularly valuable for evaluating the risk of stroke and determining the need for medical or surgical interventions to prevent stroke.

In clinical practice, a CT carotid angiogram is an essential tool for vascular surgeons, neurologists, and radiologists in diagnosing and managing carotid artery diseases. It helps assess the severity and location of carotid artery stenosis, which is critical for determining the appropriate treatment approach, such as medication, carotid endarterectomy (surgical removal of plaque), or carotid stenting (the placement of a stent to open the artery). Additionally, it can detect carotid artery aneurysms or dissections, which may require urgent medical attention or intervention. By providing detailed views of the carotid arteries and related structures, a CT carotid angiogram aids in delivering timely and targeted medical care for individuals at risk of carotid artery-related complications, particularly stroke.
