En reality vessels are images taken through the body CT real patients of a Florida hospital testing a new scanner medical General Electric has révéler.Les CAT Scan walk by sending an X-ray beam which scans the body and the result is analyzed by computer and converted into slices which are eventually assembled into a model 3D.Un problems that they face is that the time that the beam scans the body all the little patient’s movements are recorded and can result in a blurred image, which reduces the resolution of scan.Un big benefits of this new system is to realize the many scan faster so that even the beating of the heart do not disturb the result.

Abdominal arteries. Coloured angiogram of the arteries of the abdomen. The aorta runs down the centre of the image, it is the main artery of the body. It carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body.

At top right is the splenic artery, which carries blood to the spleen. The next branch from the aorta, at left, is the hepatic artery, which serves the liver.

At centre the two renal arteries (right and left) branch from the aorta and carry blood to the kidneys (blue).

At the bottom of the image the aorta divides into the two iliac arteries, which serve the legs. Angiography uses an injected contrast medium to show blood vessels on an X-ray. (Source)
