Objective To explore the relationship between accessory renal artery(ARA)and essential hypertension,and the possible mechanism using CT angiography(CTA).Methods The patients who underwent CTA examination on renal artery were reviewed retrospectively in our hospital.A variety of CTA reconstruction techniques were used to observe the type and number of ARA,as well as the diameter of ARA and the main renal artery.Results A total of 126 ARA(66 left ARA and 60 right ARA)were found in 253 patients. 10% of the patients had more than two ARAs.In 164 patients with essential hypertension,ARA detection rate was 40.2%(66/164).In the non-hypertension patients,the proportion of ARA was 31.5%(28/89).There was higher proportion of young(P=0.002)and male (P=0.022)patients in ARA hypertension group compared with ARA non-hypertension group.There were no significant differences on the prevalence of type(P=0.826)and number of ARA(P=0.501)between these two groups.In all of the patients with single ARA,no significant differences were detected on the ratios of diameter of ARA and main renal artery between the two groups(P=0.32). However,in ARA hypertension group,the diameter of main renal artery on the ARA side was significantly smaller than that on the opposite side(P=0.01).In non-hypertension ARA group,no statistical difference was found between the diameter of bilateral main renal arteries(P=0.06).Conclusion ARA is more prevalent in essential hypertensive patients,especially in young male.The decrease of the diameter of main renal artery in the ARA side may be a possible mechanism for essential hypertension.

Objective To research paramagnetic contrast media(PCM)dose,injection speed and imaging time etc in low field MRI.Methods 406 patients with lesions spreading all over the body received Gadolinium-DTPA-enhanced scan by bolus injection with the dose of 0.1~0.15 mmol/kg within 60 seconds,and the effects of contrast-enhanced were observed.Results Among 406 patients lesions,337 cases(83%)were enhanced,9 undiscovered lesions displayed enhancement on the precontrast views,5 cases were discovered new lesions in delaying enhancement scan.Conclusion It is safe to apply the above mentioned dose and injection speed in clinic.The side-effects is small,and the development effect is good.It is especially important for lesions involving the structure of the blood brain barrier(BBB).
