Superior mesenteric angiogram  

This is a selective angiogram of the superior mesenteric artery. Note that the tip of the catheter is in the proximal SMA. Some of the injected contrast refluxes back into the aorta. 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).
