For this indication, competent medicine agencies globally authorize below treatments:
80 - 300 mL
From 80 To 300 mL once every day
Whenever possible, iopromide should be injected as an i.v. bolus, preferably using a power injector. Only for slow scanners about half of the total dosage should be administered as a bolus and the rest within 2–6 minutes to guarantee a relatively constant – though not maximum – blood level.
Spiral CT in single but especially in multi-slice technique allows the rapid acquisition of a volume of data during single breath-hold. To optimize the effect of the i.v. administered bolus (80–150 ml iopromide 300) in the region of interest (peak, time and duration of enhancement), the use of an automatic power injector and bolus tracking is strongly recommended.
