New MRI contrast agent tops product news in September

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

October 4, 2022 -- The arrival of a new MRI contrast agent that's designed to enable radiology facilities to perform scans with less gadolinium was the top product news article on AuntMinnie.com in September 2022.

Gadopiclenol has been developed by both Bracco and Guerbet as a high-relaxivity macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), with the goal of allowing radiology practices to use half the gadolinium dose of existing GBCAs and alleviate concerns over potentially toxic effects of gadolinium in some patients.

Both companies have rights to sell gadopiclenol under their own brand names, with Bracco marketing it as Vueway and Guerbet selling it as Elucirem.

The rest of the top five was rounded out by an update provided by Philips on its hybrid angiography/CT suite that uses spectral detectors, a new artificial intelligence platform from Nvidia, and a new ultrasound scanner from Samsung.
