PICC is indicated for the power injection of contrast media. Prior to power injection, the CT Tech should ensure that the power injector is programmed appropriately and the contrast is warmed to body temperature. He/she should inspect the catheter for damage and ensure the catheter is patent by aspirating for blood flashback. The PICC should also be flushed prior to power injection. Once patency is confirmed, proceed with power injection. It is important to flush the catheter after the power injection as described under "Device Flushing Protocol."
