Abstract

Standing waves are a phenomenon of uncertain etiology seen on imaging. We present the first case demonstrating standing waves on computed tomography angiography in multiple vessels in a single patient with imaging evidence of resolution in some of the vessels. Our case further supports the literature that standing waves are a physiologic phenomenon, likely because of flow mechanics, rather than modality.
