CT Angiography of the Renal Arteries
We conduct CT angiography of the renal arteries when there are contraindications against an MRI scan. In most cases, the goal is to clarify whether a patient's existing high blood pressure is caused by a constriction of the renal arteries (renal artery stenosis). CT angiography is a method to prove or rule out the existence of such a constriction.
If there is indeed such a renal artery stenosis, CT angiography enables us to plan the following treatment in the form of a vascular dilatation and implantation of a stent graft. Likewise, we can control the further progress after a stent implantation using this technology.
