CT Contrast Extravasation: Can it be Decreased ? (Recorded Webinar)

CT scans have altered medicine in many ways, resulting in less exploratory surgeries, better pathology diagnosis, and even changes in the way doctors practice medicine. But if CT scans offer several benefits for diagnosis, CT contrast extravasations may carry downsides, from compartment syndrome to tissue necrosis.

In this video, Dr. Ryan K. Lee talks about CT contrast extravasation, its definition and its implications, and provides tips and tricks to decrease it.
