3D VOLUME RENDERING

Images can be volume rendered to show a variety of different structures optimally.

The image on the left is targeted to display the large blood vessels of the abdomen. This technique is called CT Angiography (CTA). Traditionally, in order to see the blood vessels with this level of detail, patients would have to undergo and angiogram, which is an invasive procedure in which catheters are placed directly into the arteries and IV contrast injected directly into the blood vessel.
