SARMENTO, C.A.P et al. Description of the fluoroscopy-guided renal arteriography in swine. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.1, pp. 250-253. ISSN 0102-0935. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352011000100036.
The fluoroscopy-guided renal arteriography was evaluated in order to be used as an auxiliary method in investigations and as a way to experimentally induce kidney diseases in swine. The technique was effective to obtain sharp images as well as to determine the area of renal irrigation. Despite its easiness, trained professionals are required to perform it.
