The introduction of spiral and more specifically multidetector CT scanners has provided unique opportunities in the field of CT angiography. It has also stressed the need of a basic knowledge of post-processing 3D imaging techniques to obtain maximum information of the CT data set. Aim of this article is to give a basic review of technical issues concerning CT angiography, with special attention to 3D imaging techniques such as surface shaded display (SSD), maximum intensity projection (MIP) and volume rendering (VR).
