Image Presentation

To encourage acceptance of the technique by referring clinicians, one has to provide images in a format to which they are accustomed and which appear similar to what they are used to in conventional angiography. The number of images should be limited for ease of reference by vascular surgeons. The images should be large enough to be viewed from a distance, using a four- or six-on-one printing format. Also bony landmarks should be provided for better orientation, as occurs with images from conventional angiography.
