Dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography to assess antitumor treatment effects: comparison of two contrast agents with different pharmacokinetics.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Dynamic contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) is a sensitive method to evaluate functional changes of the tumor microvasculature after antitumor therapy by monitoring the kinetics of the contrast agent (CA) passage. Therefore, the pharmacokinetic properties of the CA possess a central role: iodinated x-ray CAs are small molecules that… (More)
