Normal CT Angiogram of the Pedal Arteries

CT Angiography is one of the best non-invasive anatomical imaging tools available.  It can accurately depict even the smaller arteries in the foot.  Prior to a revascularization procedure, it is critical to understand as much as possible about the patient's anatomy and location of blockages.  These 3 images from a 3D reconstruction demonstrate the normal arterial anatomy of the foot.
