Not too long ago, the European Medicines Agency stated this agent, as well as three others, ought to be pulled from the European market. Concerns came from the length of time gadolinium stays within the patient’s body. For patients, the EMA recommends asking for no contrast when getting a scan.
Contrast agents are used to make contrast, or more defined images when scanning patients. It is useful to cancer or inflammation diagnoses, but it is not necessary for scans of fractures, and many other diagnoses for example.
While we stay tuned to see what will happen to this contrast agent, we are proud to supply a number of MRI Safety and MRI Comfort devices so your staff and patients don't need to worry about getting your next scan. Two such devices are our SAMM System, a MRI patient monitoring camera system, MRI Stereo, a music and two-way communication device.
