Hypertension is a disease characterized by an increase in systolic blood pressure >140 mmHg, and in diastolic blood pressure >100 mmHg. Hypertension is 90% primary (without a cause), and 10% secondary to an organic cause. Radiological modalities are mainly used to detect secondary causes of hypertension.
