Abstract

Background: In vitro studies have shown that nonionic radiographic contrast material may induce the generation of thrombin in blood, whereas ionic contrast agents, such as iohexol, do not. However, knowledge of the effects of contrast material on coagulation and fibrinolytic systems in vivo is limited.
