Accuracy and safety of CO2 digital subtraction angiography during endovascular treatment of symptomatic peripheral artery occlusive disease. A prospective study on Egyptian patients
Conclusion CO2 DSA is a non-nephrotoxic alternative to traditional ICM DSA that could be safely used and well tolerated during endovascular management of lower extremity symptomatic arterial disease. When selectively delivered to the femoropopliteal segment, CO2 provides superior quality images that would cancel or markedly reduce the ICM volume required for prompt visualization and decision making during the revascularization procedure.

The signature of fusion between the embryological derivatives of the first and second branchial arches within the ossicular chain in MDCT
Conclusions: The presence of the junctional zones between embryological derivatives of the first and second branchial arches within the ossicular chain at MDCT basis could support the dual arch interpretation at least in most of humans. Whatever the classical or dual arch interpretations or both are correct, the signature of such fusion between embryological derivatives of the first and second branchial arches within the ossicular chain, should be considered as normal variant and should not be mistaken with ossicular erosions, fractures or dislocations.
