“We have been using the Transflux™ system at the Mater for about a year now. Its use offers many advantages over traditional pressure injector use. There is less waste of consumables which equates to cost savings. There is time saving which leads to increased patient throughput. There is improvement in the quality of studies due to appropriate contrast dose, based on patient weight. This, coupled with the now routine saline flush, leads to an overall decrease in contrast volume used throughout the day. There is increased patient safety because all injections are now dual and so contrast extravasation can be reduced to almost nil by adjusting technique.
The Transflux™ system allows us to realise the imaging potential that the dual energy CT scanner promises”.
