Background
Internal iliac arterial anatomy is frequently encountered in clinical practice and is extremely challenging due to its many branches and anatomic variations. Knowledge of this anatomy is critical to providing treatment. The purpose of this exhibit is to review internal iliac anatomy and apply that knowledge to interventional radiologic procedures.

Educational Goals / Teaching Points
Review internal iliac anatomy, common anatomic variants, and techniques in imaging acquisition. Illustrate the spectrum of commonly encountered interventions where knowledge of internal iliac anatomy is critical.

Key Anatomic/Physiologic Issues and Imaging Findings/Techniques
Internal iliac anatomy by cross sectional imaging and angiography.

Conclusion
Internal iliac artery is complex, and critically important to multiple radiologic interventional procedures
