Objectives: The present study aims at determining the ability of 64-slice spiral CT angiographic analysis to identify the origin and distribution of both the left and right IPAs and its branches in normal and pathological cases. Methods: Three hundred cases of normal healthy subjects aged 20-89 years (median age = 54 years) who received the 64-slice spiral CT of abdominal vessel two-stage contrast-enhanced from the First Affiliated Hospital of Jiamusi University from August 2015 to February 2016 were selected for the study. Then the bilateral origin of the IPA was recorded, diameter and performance were measured, and the obtained data was then compared with that of the normal group. The statistical analysis was done with the help of SPSS version 17.0 statistical software. Results and Conclusion: In addition, the IPA is frequently reconstructed through several pathways, mainly through the retroperitoneal network. The study also aims to apply such findings to the clinical scenario of treating HCC. IPA with 64-slice spiral CT angiography can clearly show the normal anatomy and variation of IPA.
