Medical - Medical (general) / CT scans
Italian term or phrase: impregnazione contrastografica
This expression is in a CT scan report. The sentence is:

"Focale ispessimento della cupola vescicale con significativa *impregnazione contrastografica* dopo somministrazione di MDC."

I've searched under "impregnation of contrast medium" "contrast medium impregnation" and "contrast impregnation" but find so few examples that I think there must be a more common and frequent way to say this in this context. Does anyone know a more standard expression for this 'impregnazione contrastografica'?

Grazie di nuovo per l'aiuto!

(And 'cupola vescicale' is the cuff of the bladder? It's been answered once before here, but just want to make sure!)
