Abstract

Based on our experience before RA equipment became available and in agreement with the literature, we believe that 3DRA improves the identification of all lesions and helps refine the choice of the most suitable embolisation material and technique. Three-dimensional RA requires substantially fewer projections and thus reduces radiation dose and volume of contrast material to the patient. The use of 3DRA most likely results in a shorter procedure time and fewer risks and complications for the patient.
