To evaluate the frequency and appearance of the azygos arch valves on chest examinations using multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT), we retrospectively reviewed findings from 194 contrast-enhanced MDCT examinations of the chest. Rate of injection of 300 mgI/ml contrast materials was low (2.0 ml/s) and high (3.0 ml/s). Scanning delay was 80 s on examination on low-rate injection of contrast material and 20 s on high-rate injection of contrast material. The presence of residual contrast… CONTINUE READING
