Pediatric head CTA

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This 8 year-old patient was involved in a motor vehicle accident and presented at Phoenix Children's Hospital with multiple facial abrasions. The technologist used the IQon Spectral CT and Spectral CT Viewer to perform the exam.


The images acquired on the IQon Spectral CT showed the following:

CTA neck findings
There is conventional arch anatomy. The origins of the common carotid and vertebral arteries are patent. Both carotid bulbs appear unremarkable. Images showed no hemodynamically significant stenoses and no vascular dissection or pseudoaneurysm of the cervical vessels.

CTA head findings
The images showed no vascular abnormalities. Specifically, there are no areas of aneurysmal dilation, luminal narrowing, or dissection. Hypoplastic right A1 ACA segment is noted.

Clinical significance

Contrast-enhanced structures viewable with IQon Spectral CT results help clinician to better visualize the dural venous sinus and arterial anatomy.

* Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
