Rapid Injection of a Cold Water-soluble Triiodide for Cardiovascular Investigation. Physicochemical Basis, Injection Technique, Tolerance, Prospects of Utilization
A rapid injection of a cold water-soluble triiodinated contrast medium for cardiovascular investigation is an original method of injection. We have developed and used it for intravenous angiography (IA) with the last 800 patients of our series (more than 1900 patients). Our concern to improve the quality of films, by using doses of contrast medium (CM) equal to or less than 1 cc/kg by injection, led us to modify our initial technique of injection. The injected mass is adapted to the investigation of every area from the pulmonary arterial tree to the arteries of lower limbs.
