Overview Brief

Has your doctor ordered a CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy for you? This article will tell you everything you need to know.

What is CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy?

CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy is a diagnostic test that uses contrast material to produce images of the veins and assess their health [1].

The CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy procedure involves a CT (Computed Tomography) scanner that generates images of the veins as previously injected contrast material flows through the body [1]. The process requires only one catheter to be inserted and is safe to perform on patients of all ages.

How is CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy performed?

CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy is conducted in a designated CT scanning room.

  • An iodine-rich contrast chemical is injected into the patient as he/she lies on the examination table.
  • The table is moved into the scanner, where X-ray beams hit the patient and detectors assess the flow of the contrast material through the body.
  • This information is converted into two-dimensional images by a computer located in a connected control room [2].
  • The exam normally takes several minutes.

Side effects/risks of CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy

While CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy is safe to perform, potential risks and side effects include:

  • Risk of adverse reaction from the contrast material to patients with kidney disease.
  • Potential harm to pregnant women from radiation.
  • Minor risk of cancer from radiation exposure.

Preparations before performing CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy

The following preparations help CT Angio- Pulmonary Venous Anatomy to happen safely.

  • Patients are required to not eat or drink for several hours before the test.
  • All metal objects must be removed.
  • Physicians must be informed of all medical conditions including pregnancy, diabetes, asthma, or thyroid disease.
