Currently, there are two modes of MRI imaging, T1-weighted and T2-weighted imaging, and patients are often given contrast
agents to improve imaging quality.
sensitivity at intermediate and high spatial frequencies was lower with increasing age.
Key topics discussed include: the declining utilization of barium contrast
agents due to the emergence of endoscopy and CT colonography as favorable alternatives for gastrointestinal imaging, and the effects that recent safety concerns surrounding paramagnetic contrast
media may have on the MRI contrast
Definition of contrast
media induced acute kidney injury
Following the guidelines set by RANZCR (2016) on contrast
extravasations, the Hawkes Bay District Health Board (HBDHB) radiology department developed its own audit tool.
Media Injectors Market: Drivers & Restraints
In 2015, the iodinated contrast
agents are expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast
agents market, among products; the injectable contrast
media segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast
agents market, among the routes of administration; the X-ray/CT segment is expected to dominate the global contrast
agents market, among procedures; cardiovascular disorders is expected to account for the largest share of the global contrast
media/contrast agents market, among indications; and the radiology segment is expected to dominate the contrast media/contrast agents market, among applications.
Risk factors exist that predispose patients to contrast
Conventional liquid contrast
agents may be easily dispersed and diluted in the body fluid or blood, rapidly losing its contrast
The association between the administration of IV contrast
media (CM) and the development of acute kidney injury has been well documented.
data mining uses concepts and algorithmic tools to overcome the limitations of simpler approaches to contrasting datasets.
I performed a 6-month follow-up using the single post-contrast
scan after a triphasic contrast
