(2) As a result, the use of low tube potentials provides greater contrast enhancement, allowing for contrast media volume reduction when scanning at low tube potentials while maintaining acceptable image quality.
Then the left fore quarter was cannulated through teat orifice using teat infusion tube and infused with 30 ml of Diatrizoate meglumine and Diatrizoate sodium injection 76% (iodinated contrast radiography agent - [Trazograf.sup.a]) and right lateral radiography was taken with the same factors after sealing the teat orifice of left fore teat with Larson's teat plug (Fig.
The resultant is called spectral attenuation curve.[sup][25] Iodine has markedly increased attenuation at lower energies and decreased attenuation at higher energies.[sup][22] In conventional CT, better CT angiography (CTA) image was acquired by increasing the concentration or the dose of the contrast, or the use of a lower scanning voltage.
Results: Contrast sensitivity at intermediate and high spatial frequencies was lower with increasing age.
