To assess the feasibility of abdominal contrast-enhanced CT imaging using low iodine flow rate .40 consecutive patients referred for abdominal contrast-enhanced CT imaging of upper abdomen were enrolled in this study,and were randomized into 2 groups according to different injection protocols. 28 grams of iodine was injected at a flow rate of 1.4g I/s in Group A(Iopromide 370 mg I/ml,n=20) ; 24 grams of iodine was injected at a flow rate of 1.2g I/s in Group B (Iopromide 370 mg I/ml,n=20). Data analysis was performed in all 40 patients. There were no significant differences in five point scale for patients between 2 groups, with p value>0.05. There were no significant differences in CNR, SNR and CT attenuation for patients between 2 groups.Low IFR imaging is feasible in the abdominal CM-enhanced CT,without the sacrifice of the image quality.
