Multidetector CT of pancreas: effects of contrast material flow rate and individualized scan delay on enhancement of pancreas and tumor contrast.

Abstract

PURPOSE To prospectively assess whether high contrast material flow rate (8 mL/sec) and individualized scan delay improve enhancement of normal pancreas with multidetector computed tomography (CT) and, as a result, tumor-to-pancreas contrast of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Informed consent was obtained in 40 patients (21 women, 19 men… (More)
