There may be a new MRI contrast agent in the market soon. The best part? It’s glucose, or sugar, based so it may be safer than conventional agents.
There has been much controversy over gadolinium based MRI contrast agents, which may have led to unhealthy side effects, in the last few months. This contrast agent might even work better traditional MRI contrast agents since sugar naturally penetrates the cell deeper for better images.
While we cannot definitively say this will be the new way to image, it is exciting to see how the medical field evolves. We always have safety in the forefront here at SAMM Systems. This is why our MRI camera systemsare easy and effective methods to create a safer MRI room.
