Safety and Effectiveness of Visipaque 320mg-I/ml for Use in Contrast–Enhanced CT Angiography of Arteries of the Heart
CT (computed tomography) angiography (CTA) is an examination similar to a CAT scan that uses x-rays and a contrast medium (also called dye) to visualize blood flow in arteries and veins throughout the body VISIPAQUE™ will be given through a vein in the arm before having the CTA scan of the heart arteries. The pictures it produces of the heart and its blood vessels will be reviewed and compared to those obtained during the catheter-based coronary angiography to see if the CTA shows the same blockages.
