RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between intravenous dose of a nonionic contrast agent and hepatic enhancement using spiral computed tomography. METHODS The enhancement of the liver, hepatic vein, inferior vena cava, and aorta was evaluated in the New Zealand male rabbit after intravenous injection of iohexol, 300 mg iodine (I)/mL, at 2 mL/sec. Spiral computed tomography scans of 10 animals were evaluated at each of nine different contrast… CONTINUE READING
