OBJECTIVE: In this pictorial essay, we show the usefulness of MDCT angiography for visualization of the bronchial and nonbronchial systemic feeder vessels responsible for hemoptysis.

CONCLUSION: By providing thin-section transaxial, multiplanar reconstruction, and 3D images, CT angiography using MDCT allows comparable or better images than conventional angiography with respect to the depiction of bronchial or nonbronchial systemic arteries. CT angiography is particularly useful for visualizing the ectopic origin of bronchial arteries and nonbronchial systemic collateral arteries.
