Exploratory surgery has become a relic of the past, thanks to the combination of power injection and state-of-the-art scanner technology. Radiologists employ power injection during imaging procedures that help them to diagnose:
1. Tight "Bolus" of Contrast Media
Contrast can be concentrated in the area of interest during the scan, providing maximum enhancement and visualization in the final image without a lot of waste.
2. Precise Timing of Contrast-Media Delivery
Faster scanners, like some cardiac CT scanners, take images in less than 1 second and make precise timing absolutely critical.
3. Consistent, Reproducible, Patient-Specific Results
Power injectors deliver a consistent flow rate and volume from scan to scan, allowing physicians to easily customize injection protocols for specific studies and specific patients.
4. Time and Cost Savings
Automated features of Bayer's MEDRAD® power injection systems enable them to be part of a very efficient healthcare procedure that saves time and money.
Ongoing advances in power injection systems have ensured that the MEDRAD® name continues to be synonymous with high quality, reliability, and innovation. Not only was MEDRAD a pioneer with angiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) power injectors, we continue to lead the industry with our innovative injectors today.
