Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


We have attempted an experiment of performing a single organ post mortem angiography in a cadaver kidney using barium suspension, to understand the vascular anatomy and to justify the use of dilute barium suspension as a cheaper and easily available substitute to the more costlier commercially available agents. Through our small experiment we would like to emphasize that conventional fluoroscopic angiography using barium sulphate suspension for organ specific post mortem analysis is thus an alternative to CT angiography and is cost effective as demonstrated in this experimental procedure.
