Abstract

The preliminary results of perfluoroctylbromide (PFOB) emulsion when used an an intravenous contrast agent for hepatosplenic CT imaging in humans are reported. Ten patients were examined using dosages ranging from 1 to 2 g/kg. There was good clinical and biochemical tolerance. Diagnostic dose for liver enhancement seems to be at least 2 g/kg, whereas 1 g/kg was sufficient for splenic enhancement.
