The availability and diffusion of high-performance technologies has strengthened the role of CT angiography and MR angiography as simple and reliable techniques for the characterization and treatment planning of the main diseases of the cardiocirculatory system, an understanding of which has become essential for all radiologists. The aim of this book is to provide technical indications which are both concise and thorough regarding the main methods and examination techniques for performing high-quality CT angiography and MR angiography studies in a broad range of clinical settings. This is supported by a large number of cases and is rich with advice on image interpretation and practical suggestions for the evaluation and reporting of the examinations. The text will therefore also aim to provide a comparison of the advantages and limitations of the two techniques in various diseases and vascular regions, thus offering indications to both the expert and trainee radiologist.Type of contrast medium: preferably use a high-concentration contrast medium ( 370 and 400 mg of iodine / mL), ... of 1.0 g of iodine /s (which corresponds to a flow around 3.0 mL/s with a contrast medium concentration of 350 mg of iodine / mL). ... In these cases the manual start of scanning can overcome the interference.
