Title:
Volume-rendered three-dimensional spiral computed tomographic angiography as a planning tool for microsurgical reconstruction in patients who have had operations or radiotherapy for oropharyngeal cancer. 
Abstract:
Three-dimensional spiral computed tomographic angiography (3D-SCTA) is a minimally invasive method of delineating vessels in three-dimensional detail. Our aim was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of volume-rendered three-dimensional SCTA for planning microsurgical reconstruction. Eighteen patients had a spiral computed tomogram (CT) of the extracranial carotid arteries. The volume rendering technique (VRT) was used to visualise the cervical vessels, and the three-dimensional SCTA images evalu...    »
