Abstract

In this chapter new vascular imaging techniques will be presented, as well as their characteristic and comparison to other techniques commonly used in the vascular surgery practice. Two tracer methods, one using fluorine 18-labelled 2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG), used in PET, and the second one — nuclear imaging in CT, MRI and PET, as well as intravascular ultrasonography, which needs special device to be performed, were analysed. Data was collected from articles available in internet medical base Elsevier from years 2000 to 2010. Among presented IVUS is closest to become diagnostic tool used in everyday practice. It gives similar results to angiography, enables assessment of vessel morphology, there is no radiation risk and the costs are lower. Although this tool is too precise and has limited usage, therefore it can’t replace angiography. Radionuclides and FDG are diagnostic tools, which may be used in assessment and predict atherosclerosis development, and therefore better adjust prophylactic therapy. In the end a new face of angiography is presented.
