ACR Manual on Contrast Media Version , , American College of Radiology; Park S, Kang D, Sohn K et al. Immediate mild reactions to CT with iodinated contrast media: strategy of contrast readministration without corticosteroids. Radiology. May 16 [Epub ahead of print]. What Is Digital Radiology? Digital radiology is a computer-based form of X-ray technology that uses digital imaging instead of traditional X-ray film to create medical images. By producing images digitally, hospitals can save money and easily produce or send X-ray images as electronic files.

'Radiology Life Support' focuses on the adverse effects and life-threatening emergencies caused by reactions to the contrast media used in every modern radiology department. Such reactions are relatively infrequent yet can be severe and are therefore difficult to identify and then handle safely without training.   All contrast agents are not equal. The two main types of iodine-based contrast media are ionic and nonionic. The development of ionic contrast media in the s and s allowed radiologists to visualize vessels and organs on various imaging studies.

This chapter discusses radiological contrast media. Barium enema perforation has a serious mortality and requires aggressive intravenous fluid therapy, early operation with peritoneal toilet, colostomy and antibiotics (SED, ). Barium tends to adhere to the peritoneum and is often difficult to remove. MRI contrast agents have become an indispensable part of contemporary magnetic resonance imaging. Although MRI was initially hoped to provide a means of making definitive diagnoses without administering contrast media, it has been found that the addition of contrast agents in many cases improves sensitivity and/or specificity.

From these, a handy ‘must read’ list of review articles on this subject, published in recent times and available online, is given below in Table : IK Indrajit. Textbook of Contrast Media provides the first exhaustive account of the use of contrast media in clinical practice.

Edited by distinguished figures in the field, the book is divided into five main sections: history and background, X-ray contrast agents, MR contrast agents, ultrasound contrast agents, and Cited by: Contrast medium or radiological contrast media is a substance that is commonly used by the medical practitioner worldwide to optimize the contrast of structures or fluids in our body.

CMX Medical Imaging South Glacier Tukwila, WA () () () Contrast media are substances used to highlight areas of the body in radiographic contrast to their surrounding tissues. Contrast media enhance the optical density of the area under investigation so that the tissue/structure absorption differentials are sufficient to produce adequate contrast with adjacent structures, enabling imaging to take place.

Contrast media, also called contrast agents, are used to enhance the blood and perfusion in tissues. This includes iodine based contrast for on computed tomography (CT), gadolinium based agents for MRI and lipid bubble contrast agents used in ultrasound.

Contrast Materials What are contrast materials and how do they work. Contrast materials, also called contrast agents or contrast media, are used to improve pictures of the inside of the body produced by x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and ultrasound.

Small differences in tissue densities of the body do not allow optimal radiographic evaluation without contrast enhancement. Soon after the discovery of x-rays by Roentgen, enhancement of radiopacity was felt necessary to obtain better contrast of images.

Digital radiography, also known as direct digital radiography, uses x-ray–sensitive plates that directly capture data during the patient examination, immediately transferring it to a computer system without the use of an intermediate cassette as is the case with CR.
