An 80-year-old male patient with an axillobifemoral bypass graft presented for follow up. The graft had been necessary due to an occluded right common iliac artery and bilateral external iliac arteries 7 years ago. The disabling claudication and rest pain in both lower limbs improved after the operation. However, intermittent claudication in the right lower limb began again 3 years ago and has progressed ever since. A Dual Energy CT (DECT) was requested for further evaluation.

The outcomes by Siemens Healthineers customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
