The purpose of the present multicenter study was to evaluate the impact of a reduced iodine concentration (240 mg iodine/ml) on the diagnostic quality in ascending phlebography. No difference at a statistically significant level in terms of volume was found when both concentrations were compared. However, at the higher concentration, an improved visualization of both the iliac axis and the area of venous occlusion was obtained at a statistically significant level. The overall diagnostic yield was not significantly different. In conclusion, application of 240 iodine/ml is recommended because of a lower risk of potential damage to the venous wall.
