Descriptor English: Angiography, Digital Subtraction
Descriptor Spanish: Angiografía de Substracción Digital
Descriptor angiografía por substracción digital
Scope note: Método para delinear los vasos sanguíneos por substracción de una imagen del fondo tisular de la imagen de tejido más el material de contraste intravascular que atenúa los fotones de rayos X. La imagen del fondo se determina con una imagen digitalizada tomada pocos momentos antes de la inyección del material de contraste. El angiograma resultante es una imagen de alto contraste del vaso. Esta técnica de substracción permite la extracción de una señal de gran intensidad a partir de la información sobrepuesta del fondo. Por tanto, la imagen es el resultado de la absorción diferencial de los rayos x por los diferentes tejidos.

Scope note: A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
