    Extravasation of contrast in CT


    It happens occassionally, despite all precautions. Here, the extravasation was about 10 cm proximal to the injection site in the antecubital fossa, which we had not come across before. An x-ray confirmed that it was contrast.

    I have a 5-month old inflammed vein on the back of my wrist from CT contrast infiltration, no remedy was offered at the time. Is there something I can do to treat at this point?
