Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)

This is a computed tomography exam of the arteries. This allows the physician to evaluate blood flow to a particular area of the body like the kidneys or lower extremities. This is done with a contrast (x-ray dye) injection into a vein in the arm. This is relatively painless and can be done on an out-patient basis.
