Inferior mesenteric angiogram  

This is a selective angiogram of the inferior mesenteric artery. The contrast is filling the inferior mesenteric artery and its branches. Note that the bony anatomy has been 'subtracted' from view by a computer program in order to focus on the vascular anatomy. Click here to see the same image unsubtracted (i.e. with bones). Note that in the unsubtracted image, the contrast has been excreted into the renal collecting systems.


Identify the following:

1. inferior mesenteric artery

2. left colic artery

3. sigmoidal arteries

4. superior rectal artery
