Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal


Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) produces high-contrast digital images of the abdominal vasculature with minimum patient discomfort. We summarize the Henry Ford Hospital experience with DSA in evaluating various abdominal vascular disorders. The methods and merits of intravenous and intraarterial approaches, the advantages and disadvantages compared with those of conventional angiography, and the current limitations of DSA are discussed.
