PURPOSE Pain sensation and extravasation are potential drawbacks of contrast media (CM) injection during computed tomographic angiography. The purpose was to evaluate safety and patient comfort of higher flow rates in different CM protocols during coronary computed tomographic angiography. METHODS Two hundred consecutive patients of a double-blind randomized controlled trial (NCT02462044) were analyzed. Patients were randomized to receive 94 mL of prewarmed iopromide 240 mg I/mL at 8.3 mL/s… CONTINUE READING
