RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors develop and compare contrast material injection protocols suitable for hepatic helical computed tomography. METHODS One hundred twenty-one patients who underwent contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the liver with spiral CT imaging were evaluated for enhancement of the liver parenchyma and for post-enhancement attenuation of the aorta and portal vein with iohexol. Patients were assigned randomly to five protocols with different flow rates, volume… CONTINUE READING
