A new study shows that there may be a new type of MRI contrast agent. The best part? It’s glucose, or sugar, based. This means it may be safer than other contrast agents in the market.
As you may have read in our previous posts, there was a recent controversy over gadolinium based MRI contrast agents, which may have led to unhealthy side effects. This new contrast agent in some ways also allows for even better results than traditional MRI contrast agents, since sugar naturally penetrates the cell deeper.
