Arteriography Extremity There is no evidence to support the use of arteriography as the initial imaging evaluation for a suspected vascular malformation because of its invasive nature. MRA is noninvasive and can depict the vascular anatomy of a malformation nearly as well as arteriography [9], making it the preferred initial imaging evaluation. Arteriography does offer the highest

of US, sonographic diagnosis of compressive effects upon the brachial plexus is a challenge [34], and symptoms of TOS may unmask a deeper regional pathology such as Pancoast tumor or cervical spondylopathy, requiring further imaging. Computed Tomography Angiography Contrast-enhanced CT evaluation of TOS is typically performed as a 2-step procedure in which initial “neutral” images are obtained from elbow to aortic arch with the arms adducted to the side, followed by abduction and repeat imaging (...) (MRI) is now a widely available and utilized modality for reliable, reproducible, noninvasive, and nonionizing evaluation of the vasculature, nervous system, and soft tissues [43]. MRI has inherent advantages over US in its ability to delineate extravascular anatomy, particularly in anatomic sites with poor sonographic windows, and it has advantages over CT in its characterization and differentiation of soft tissues. MRI does, however, have contraindications and is not recommended in certain

152. ACR/SIR Practice Parameter for the Performance of Diagnostic Infusion Venography

Radiology (SIR) in collaboration with the American College of Radiology (ACR), was revised by the ACR in collaboration with the SIR. Diagnostic infusion venography is a radiographic study of venous anatomy using contrast media injection via a peripheral intravenous access. The term does not imply a specific method, type, or rate of contrast media injection. Such a study will often visualize the venous system to the right atrium. However, the term diagnostic infusion venography does not include central (...) or complementary in specific clinical situations [1-4]. In particular, duplex ultrasound has largely replaced diagnostic infusion venography of the upper or lower extremity since the sensitivity and specificity of duplex ultrasound above the elbow or knee are satisfactory for diagnosing acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and venous insufficiency [5-20]. Infusion venography has small but definite risks of complications including nephrotoxicity, contrast allergy, and/or infection [21-33]. Diagnostic infusion
