Meglumineioxitalamate (Télébrix*) was the mostusediodinatedcontrastproductwith 65.4%. The average flow rate was 3.92 ml/s in ourstudy. The average value of Dose-Length-Product (DLP) per acquisition was 353.79 mGy.cm withextreme values ​​of 91 to 775mGy.cm. Hot flashes were the mostfrequentlyencounteredsideeffect in our patients with a frequency of 26.9%. Among the angio-TTDM performed, 80.8% of ourexaminationscorresponded to the successcriteria
