Optimal Visualization of Coronary and Collateral Blood Flow

  • H. E. Aldridge
Conference paper


Two advances in the last decade have made a major impact on coronary arteriography, namely, the introduction of the caesium iodide image intensifiers and the routine use of caudo-cranial (cranial) and cranio-caudal (caudal) angled projections [1–11].
