Contrast/Bolus Administration Route Sequence

(0018,0014)

3

Sequence that identifies the route of administration of contrast agent.

Only a single Item is permitted in this Sequence.

>Include Table 8.8-1 “Code Sequence Macro Attributes”

Baseline CID 11 “Route of Administration”.

>Additional Drug Sequence

(0018,002A)

3

Sequence that identifies any additional drug that is administered with the contrast agent bolus.

One or more Items are permitted in this Sequence.

>>Include Table 8.8-1 “Code Sequence Macro Attributes”

No Baseline CID is defined.

Contrast/Bolus Volume

(0018,1041)

3

Volume injected in milliliters of diluted contrast agent

Contrast/Bolus Start Time

(0018,1042)

3

Time of start of injection

Contrast/Bolus Stop Time

(0018,1043)

3

Time of end of contrast injection

Contrast/Bolus Total Dose

(0018,1044)

3

Total amount in milliliters of the undiluted contrast agent

Contrast Flow Rate

(0018,1046)

3

Rate(s) of injection(s) in milliliters/sec

Contrast Flow Duration

(0018,1047)

3

Duration(s) of injection(s) in seconds. Each Contrast Flow Duration value shall correspond to a value of Contrast Flow Rate (0018,1046).

Contrast/Bolus Ingredient

(0018,1048)

3

Active ingredient of agent.

Defined Terms:

IODINE

GADOLINIUM

CARBON DIOXIDE

BARIUM

Contrast/Bolus Ingredient Concentration

(0018,1049)

3

Milligrams of active ingredient per milliliter of (diluted) agent


Note

  1. Flow duration is an alternate method of specifying stop time

  2. Flow rate allows for stepped injections by being capable of multiple values (1,N) instances.

  3. For a 100 ml injection of 76% Diatrizoate and meglumine/sodium, diluted 1:1,

    • the Contrast/Bolus Agent would be "76% Diatrizoate" as text

    • the Contrast/Bolus Volume would be 100 ml,

    • the Contrast/Bolus Total Dose would be 50 ml,

    • the Contrast/Bolus Ingredient would be "IODINE",

    • the Contrast/Bolus Ingredient Concentration would be 370mg/ml.
