With this technique, stepping table movement is used to chase a bolus of contrast down the lower extremities. Up to 8 stages / 7 steps are available to match the range of patient heights. The Dynamic Stepping image is displayed in subtraction in real-time during acquisition.
FPD 12" × 16" panel may be used in either Portrait mode or Landscape mode, depending on patient size.
During post-processing, the operator may choose the Panoramic View to stitch the stepping stages together, creating a single contiguous image of the lower extremity vasculature.
