I was searching through a patient’s x-ray files for a comparison film and came across this aortogram.
Had never seen what an aortogram looks like prior to this exam.
Looked more like an emaciated picture of Gumby when I first saw it.
The head and body are the aorta.
The arms are the renal arteries (going to the kidneys).
The legs are the femoral arteries (going to the legs).
The white markings are calcium deposits within the vessel walls.
