This study is being performed to find out if a new kind of breast imaging (called contrast-media enhanced breast CT or CE-BCT) can help doctors to see the small structures in breast tissue...
It is well known that X-ray contrast media can affect kidney function in some patients, especially when administered intra-arterially, and patients who already suffer from reduced kidney f...
The prevalence of nausea and vomiting after the administration of non-ionic contrast media has rarely been assessed. Thus, the aim of our study is to evaluate the prevalence and risk facto...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the effects on kidney function of two contrast media, the iso-osmolar iodixanol and the low-osmolar iopamidol in patients at risk ...
The breast MRI is used in the preoperative scenario to evaluate the extension of a newly diagnosed breast cancer and to screen the contralateral breast. The scan consists of a series of im...
Although there is growing theoretical and empirical support for the proposition that media exposure to conflicting health information negatively influences public understanding and behavior, few studi...
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends infants' exposure to electronic screen-based media be minimized; however, more research is needed to understand effects of viewing screen-based media. Her...
Swelling of the salivary glands, also known as iodide or iodine mumps, is a rare adverse reaction to administration of iodine, a component steadily present in current contrast media and in a variety o...
Increasing awareness of potential side effects from gadolinium-based contrast agents has underlined the need for contrast-free magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Numerous recent articles evaluated the ...
Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.
A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
A disorder of cardiac function secondary to hypersensitivity reactions. It is characterized by coexistence of acute coronary syndromes and cardiac MAST CELL and PLATELET ACTIVATION. It may be induced by exposure to drugs (e.g., antibiotics, anesthetics, contrast media), food, and environmental triggers (e.g., insect bites and stings, poison ivy).
Very small encapsulated gas bubbles (diameters of micrometers) that can be used as CONTRAST MEDIA, and in other diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Upon exposure to sufficiently intense ultrasound, microbubbles will cavitate, rupture, disappear, release gas content, etc. Such characteristics of the microbubbles can be used to enhance diagnostic tests, dissolve blood clots, and deliver drugs or genes for therapy.
