Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Takayasu`s arteritis is a well-known systemic disease that involves the aorta, major aortic branches, and pulmonary arteries. Conventional catheter angiography remains the gold standard for disease diagnosis, in correlation with clinical data and laboratory findings. Multislice computed tomography angiography (MSCTA) has the advantage of non-invasively providing the angiographic data and combining morphological mural assessment with luminal evaluation. We present 2 such cases diagnosed by 16-slice MSCTA.
