Head and Neck
Technical improvements have established CT angiography as a standard noninvasive imaging modality for the evaluation of the vascular system of head and neck. This chapter provides information about dedicated protocols for scanning and postprocessing of DE CTA and DE virtually unenhanced NECT, with special focus on ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke as well as on evaluation of stenosis.
