The effect of type and characteristics of catheters, various contrast media, injection pressure, and intra-arterial pressure on iodine delivery has been studied. Results reveal a definite advantage of Teflon catheters over others tested despite their radiolucency. With the newly introduced contrast media high injection pressure appears not only unnecessary, but in some cases undesirable. A contrast material currently under investigation appears to have definite advantage over other available media for aortography.
