Radiographic contrast medium may cause tissue injury by extravasation during intravenous automated injection during CT examination. A large - volume extravasation (140 mL) occurred in an adult during contrast-enhanced CT The patient had a swelling and injury on the dorsum right hand of intravenous catheter region. The extravasation injury site was determined by CT scanning. The extavasation compartment syndrome case was examined using four separate display techniques. These 3D MDCT findings might help to determine the best course of treatment for patient with contrast extravasation. 3D image reconstructions provide accurate views of high-resolution and soft-tissue imaging. This paper introduces extravasation with the radiography and 3D MDCT findings.
