Comprehensive MDCT evaluation of patients with suspected May-Thurner syndrome



Comprehensive MDCT evaluation of patients with suspected May-Thurner syndrome



Ajr. American Journal of Roentgenology 199(5): W638-W645



The purpose of this essay is to introduce the MDCT protocol and interpretation techniques for optimal evaluation of patients with suspected May-Thurner syndrome. May-Thurner syndrome is always the working diagnosis when a patient presents with unilateral left lower limb swelling without signs of infection. MDCT is useful for fast, comprehensive evaluation of the vascular system to determine whether May-Thurner syndrome or an alternative condition is present.
