Pelvic computed tomography angiography (CTA) prior to prostatic artery embolization is a beneficial tool for preprocedural planning to increase the likelihood of success during what can be a challenging procedure. Additionally, the same CTA images can be used for calculating the baseline prostate volume as well as for intraprocedural anatomic guidance, adding to the value of the scan. This article discusses the technique used for pelvic CTA and its role in preprocedural assessment of the pelvic vasculature prior to prostatic artery embolization.
