Contrast media or contrast agents are used by patients who are supposed to undergo imaging test for the diagnosis of various diseases or disorders. Contrast media consumables are vastly used for different clinical diagnosis to improve the diagnostic performance of medical imaging test. Contrast media consumables improve the output of medical imaging as compared to simple imaging (i.e. without using any agent). Contrast media consumables are used in various types of medical imaging such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US). Computed tomography contrast media consumables are majorly used for blood vessel visualization. By enhancing blood vessel visuals, computed tomography has proved to be useful for examination of the spine, internal structure of brain, kidney, liver, etc. Contrast media consumables in positron emission tomography (PET) are used for glucose analog examination. Contrast media consumables help in highlighting the difference between different body parts though they have similar composition and provide information about how the body is working or if there is any disorder present. Selection of contrast media consumables completely depends on the kidney function, site and type of diagnostic test and any other conditions affecting the body.
