Air embolism is definitely reported as a potential risk of doing contrast studies. When I worked at the Vet School we used CO2 and not air for this reason. The complication that we saw here was a whole other level. There is only one other case report in a cat showing this. I don’t think this should stop us doing these studies… but it definitely made me STOP… and think!… and panic a bit! x
