Contrast-medium-enhanced multiple-detector-row CT (MDCT) is a powerful technique for vascular and hepatic imaging. With increasingly faster acquisition speeds, which have become possible with latest 8- and 16-channel scanner systems, contrast medium delivery is becoming increasingly difficult. This article reviews the pharmacokinetic and physiologic principles of vascular and hepatic enhancement following the intravenous injection of iodinated contrast medium. The effects of user-selectable… CONTINUE READING
