PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the injection pressure reduction effect of the novel indwelling needle (Becton, Dickinson and Company). METHOD We evaluated the period of 651 patients who underwent dynamic computed tomography. We compared the maximum injection pressure. The contrast medium was administered at 320, 350, and 370 mgI/ml. RESULT The maximum injection pressure of the novel indwelling needle in 22 G was decreased 10% compared with SC5 in all contrast media… CONTINUE READING
