CT Angiography of the Renal Arteries

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.
