The development of endovascular techniques depends on the concomitant development of imaging techniques. Imaging with ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MR) is evolving at rapid pace. Angiography has largely been replaced by these techniques as a diagnostic tool in the clinical setting. New methods, e.g., rotational angiography and intravascular ultrasound, will play an important role in endovascular treatment of vascular disease. It is necessary to have easy access to ultrasonography, CT and MR images in future hybrid angiographic/surgical suites and the operator must be able to do advanced immediate reconstructions in a sterile environment. The combined use of advanced imaging, open and endovascular techniques will further improve the treatment of vascular disease in the future.
