This present retrospective descriptive study carried out between 2017 and 2022, in the tomography setting in a highly complex philanthropic private hospital, located in São Paulo- Brazil, aims to analyze the risk factors related to iodinated contrast extravasation in patients undergoing computed tomography and compare it with the related literature. A total of 146 events involving contrast extravasation were analyzed. Extravasations are considered adverse events and should be actively monitored, as they are an important quality measurement tool because they are actively linked to patient experience.
