80-kV pulmonary CT angiography with 40 mL of iodinated contrast material in lean patients: comparison of vascular enhancement with iodixanol
(320 mg l/mL) and iomersol (400 mg I/mL).
Intravenous iohexol contrast (Iodixanol
880 mg/kg; GE Health Care Ireland, Cork, Ireland) was administered by manual injection with a time lapse of 4 minutes between precontrast and postcontrast scans.
The scan was acquired by bolus injection of 50-70 ml (adjusted according to body mass index) of iodixanol
(Visipaque™ 320 mg/ml, GE Healthcare, UK) at a flow rate of 5 ml/s, followed by 40 ml of normal saline at the same speed.
A total of 248 ml of iodixanol
(Visipaque) containing 320 mg-iodine/ml intra-arterial injection was administered for aortic arch and thoracic aortic arteriogram to evaluate anatomy and blood flow and for endoleak assessment.
However, there is no consensus on whether nonionic dimers isomolar iodixanol
is superior to nonionic monomer low-isomolar iohexol.
The solution of SWCNTs and five mixtures of 2% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS, Aldrich) solution with 27.5, 30, 32.5, 35, and 40 wt% iodixanol
(COSMO BIO Co.) solutions were put layer by layer into a centrifuge tube (Hitachi Koki Co.) in order to form the density gradient.
A newer agent iodixanol
which is a isoosmolar, nonionic dimer is preferable for procedures during which the central nervous system, cardiovascular, or renal system is exposed to insult .
We aimed at evaluating the acute effects of iodixanol
, an iso-osmolar contrast agent, on pulmonary functions and at evaluating the body composition regarding the question of whether it plays a potential role in causing this deterioration.
(OptiPrep), rather than sucrose, is preferred for gradient because it reduces contaminants such as HDL [65, 66], small apoptotic bodies, and virus .
For instance, iodixanol
gradient gives lower densities of LDL particles than traditional salt gradient, because the particles maintain their native hydration [3, 28, 29].
(VISIPAQUE, GE Healthcare, Cork, Ireland) with an iodine concentration of 320 mg I/mL was used as the standard of care contrast media.
A contrast-enhanced (intravenous iodixanol
) abdominal computed tomography (CT) examination is performed on a 16-row multidetector CT (GE).
