  • Figure 1
    CT Angiography
     

    Volume rendered CT Angiography revealed total occlusion of the left popliteal artery.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Ischaemia / Infarction;

    CT angiography is demonstrating the abnormal relation of the popliteal arteries ( Green Arrow on the right & Blue Arrow on the left) with medial head Gastrocnemius (Red Arrows) where the arteries are medial to the...

     
    Area of Interest: Vascular; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Ischaemia / Infarction;

    Coronal MPR scan demonstrating a medially deviated popliteal artery with subsequent entrapment against medial heads Gastrocnemius (Red Arrows), the left artery is occluded ( White arrow ), the right artery is patent (...

     
    Area of Interest: Cardiovascular system; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Ischaemia / Infarction;

    Axial CT in the standard case demonstrating the healthy relationship between the popliteal artery ( Red Arrow ) and medial head Gastrocnemius where the artery is lateral to the muscle.

     
    Area of Interest: Vascular; Imaging Technique: CT-Angiography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Ischaemia / Infarction;

    MPR CT in the typical case demonstrating the rational relation of the Popliteal artery ( Red Arrow ) lateral to the medial head Gastrocnemius ( White Arrow ).
