Omniscan Buy Online Gadodiamide 287 mg 10 ml 1 Vials

Omniscan, containing  gadodiamide active substance, is a contrast agent that has clinical implications in medical imaging in MRI.  This contrast agent in the MRI and in the magnetic resonance angiography reduces the T1 time in its surroundings, which increases the effective contrast (CNR). It is used to perform brain MRI to detect intracranial lesions with abnormal or suspected abnormalities in the brain-blood vessel barrier, which is also used to detect spinal cord injury and constipation.
