Contrast agent / injection protocol

A power injector is used for the intravenous contrast administration. Gadolinium dose is 0.2 cc per kg body weight. Dosage speed is 2 cc/sec. A saline flush of 15 cc is applied at the end.


The injector and the dynamic scan are started at the same time. An injection delay of 90 sec is applied on the injector. In this way the start of the gadolinium injection is synchronized with the start of the second dynamic scan without interruption of the scanner noise. This way patient movement between the first (mask) and following (post gadolinium) dynamics is prevented.

Post-processing / analysis

DynaCAD is used for post-processing. A dedicated hanging protocol is used.
