CT Angiography of the Peripheral Arteries
When contraindications against an MRI scan exist, then we recommend CT angiography. This technology serves to diagnose a possible peripheral artery occlusive disease (PAOD; intermittent claudication). CT angiography can prove or rule out the existence of constrictions requiring treatment in the peripheral arteries. Based on this examination, we can decide whether surgical treatment (e.g. bypass) or endovascular treatment (e.g. balloon dilatation with or without a stent implantation) is necessary. Likewise, we can control your further progress following a stent implantation or a surgical bypass without any problems.
