Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is chronic slowly developing condition caused by narrowing of vascular lumen with incidence strongly associated with increasing age.
A high quality CTA of the peripheral arteries may still be difficult due to wide scan range from lower abdomen to the forefoot and because of contrast timing issues,
especially if arterial occlusion or different flow patterns in left and right vasculature are present.
Therefore high contrast media (CM) volumes are still commonly used [2-4].
This study aimed to evaluate image quality of low voltage CTA scans of the peripheral arteries in combination with low CM volume in patients with peripheral artery disease.
