What is a CT Angiography Scan of the Pelvis?
CT Angiography Scan of the Pelvis focuses particularly on the blood vessels in the pelvis area to evaluate diseases and related conditions, using a contrast material to make them show up clearly in the images.

CT rapidly creates detailed pictures of the body, including the pelvis and areas near the pelvis. The test may be used to diagnose or detect if you have these following indications:
