2. Absence of motion artifacts. Fig. 1. Region: concentrated on central hilar portion, from above the aortic arch Example of Axial Scan Fig. 2 a, b. (Case courtesy of Dr. J. Schoepf ) Caveat 1. The high ﬂow of contrast material injected may cause artifacts from the superior vena cava. 5 s Scan orientation Caudo-cranialb Scanner settings 120 kV, 140 eff. 0 ml/s Scan delay 16 sc Scan time is usually below 15 s, which is well tolerated in breathhold by most patients. Since the sensitive lower parts are scanned ﬁrst, the caudo-cranial scan orientation helps to minimize artifacts from breathing.

(Case courtesy of Dr. B. 5 s Scan orientation Caudo-cranial Scanner settings 120 kV, 90–180 eff. mAs Kernel (algorithm) Soft Window (width/center) 120/45 Contrast medium Yes Administration Monophasic Volume 120 ml Flow rate 3 ml/s Scan delay 100 s Comments This protocol can be used to detect or exclude a thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus, the sigmoid sinus, or the large cephalic veins. CTA is not capable of detecting or excluding a cavernous sinus thrombosis or of the cephalic veins.
