Patient Comfort During Contrast Media Injection in Coronary CT Angiography Using Varying Contrast Media Concentrations and Flow Rates: Results From the EICAR Trial.

posted by Marco Das, M.D. | Feb 26, 2017
Marco Das, M.D.

Purpose: Pain sensation and extravasation are potential drawbacks of contrast media (CM) injection during computed tomographic angiography. The purpose was to evaluate safety and patient comfort of higher flow rates in different CM protocols during coronary computed tomographic angiography. Read more
