A research team led by Assistant Professor Edward Chow, Principal Investigator from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore at NUS and Department of Pharmacology at NUS Yong Loo Lin of Medicine, has developed a dual-mode contrast
agent which enables clearer and more accurate images of tumours to be obtained in both T1- and T2-weighted MRI scans, and with lower dosages of contrast
Conclusion: Increasing age, small pupil diameter, hyperopia, and photopic conditions were associated with lower contrast
sensitivity in healthy individuals.
What is the current and future outlook of the contrast
media in developed and emerging markets?
In order to reduce the risk of CIN European Society of Urogenital Radiology as also American College of Radiology and the Canadian Association of Radiologists have published guidelines for iv contrast
The rate was determined by number of extravasation events over the total number of diagnostic scans using IV contrast
during each calendar year 2011 to 2015.
Technological advancement, innovation, increasing demand for diagnostic imaging, increasing healthcare expenditure, minimal invasive procedure, rising number of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular, neurological, increasing geriatric population, are the most important driving factors in contrast
media injectors market.
In 2015, North America is estimated to be the largest market for contrast
agents, globally, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW).
Anxiety has been shown to increase the likelihood of contrast
We developed a novel contrast
agent of foam state made from human serum albumin solution, room air, and iodinated contrast
ii) procedure-related: intra-arterial administration of contrast
medium, high osmolality agents, large doses of contrast
medium, and multiple contrast
medium administrations within a few days .
The lesion was a subtle lesion, difficult to identify on both examinations, but it is my opinion that it is seen as easily using the single post-triphasic contrast
injection technique (Fig.
5 mg/dL within 48 hours after exposure to contrast
medium that is maintained for 2-5 days and can not be attributed to other causes.
And when T1 and T2 still don't provide enough contrast
, even more sophisticated machine-control techniques can be used such as fat-suppression or chemical shifts.
, Blackpool's main amusement park Pleasure Beach grew piecemeal on the southern edge of the resort town and to a degree in imitation of Coney Island.
CT scanning without oral contrast
worked as well or better for diagnosing appendicitis as CT scanning with oral contrast
, investigators of a systematic review have reported.
