The Contrast Agents are drugs that generally are administer directly in the vein, arteries or joints, or are ingested orally and are used to visualize organs such as the brain, kidneys, liver, blood vessels and stomach to detect any abnormality that may affect them.

They may be used in exams via Magnetic Resonance, CT Scan and/or Interventional Radiology. They can be injected  directly or via an injector that is programmed according to the patient’s needs and protocols.

Currently, we have Contrast Agents for all intervention areas mentioned: Gadoteric Acid for Magnetic Resonance; OptiRay for  CT Scan and Lipiodol for Interventional Radiology. We also have a variety of Injectors and Dedicated Disposables for the application of our Constrast Agents.
