MRI contrast agents, particularly gadolinium based agents, are getting a lot of attention lately. Some of this news has been good, some news poor, and some news ambivalent. The most recent news in the world of contrast agents is exciting, however. 

A team at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, led by Dr. Gang Han, is developing a protein-based contrast agent. Similar to the glucose contrast agent in earlier news, this contrast agent is another natural occurring product of the body. One special property of this team’s contrast agent is that it aims to be ‘tumor-targeting’. We will have to wait and see how exactly it targets tumors in the upcoming tests, but it aims to be like other targeting proteins, such as those that used in cancer treatment. 

Here at Sound Imaging, we are intrigued to see how all of these contrast agents will play a role in the world of imaging. While the world of MRI contrast agents becomes more complex, keep things simple with a wide array of MRI equipment. Any MRI parts, MRI coils, or MRI services, is quick and easy find with our team.
