PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of a low-contrast agent dose protocol at abdominal dynamic computed tomography (CT) with a low tube voltage high tube current-time product technique and a 256-detector row CT unit. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study received institutional review board approval; written informed consent to participate was obtained from all patients. The study included 151 patients; 117 had an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) greater than or equal to 60… CONTINUE READING
