  • 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).
