Tailored Duration of Contrast Material Injection in High-Pitch Computed Tomographic Aortography With a Double-Level Test Bolus Method

posted by | Oct 5, 2017

To achieve the efficient usage of contrast material (CM) in high-pitch CT aortography, an appropriate duration of the CM injection is crucial. We used a modification of the double-level test bolus method for determination of proper injection duration with the aim of evaluating the image quality of tailored-duration CM injection … Read more

Objective: Chronic renal failure is common in patients referred for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). CT angiography is recommended and provides crucial information prior to TAVI. We evaluated the feasibility of a reduced contrast volume protocol for pre-procedural CTimaging. Read more
