Villepinte (France), November 23, 2017 (8:00 CET) – Guerbet (FR0000032526 GBT), the global specialist in contrast products and solutions for medical imaging, today announces the launch of Contrast&Care®, a new contrast media injection management solution for radiology centers.
The launch of the solution is part of the strategy of Guerbet to develop a portfolio of digital solutions to optimize the care and management of patients by healthcare professionals.
Contrast&Care® is an integrated IT solution that groups together all the information related to exams requiring the injection of contrast media (contrast media, injection protocol, patient data, etc.) and that interfaces with information systems used in radiology such as the Radiology Information System (RIS) or the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS).
The information generated by compatible injectors is transmitted automatically to Contrast&Care® at the end of each exam. This enables users to view the history of each patient, the exams with injection that have been performed and the doses of contrast media administered. Contrast&Care also offers the option of reviewing protocols, creating protocol libraries, and viewing statistics and trends relative to injection activity and the use of contrast media.
“Contrast&Care® was conceived by Guerbet to improve traceability and help healthcare professionals make decisions on a daily basis. With these new digital solutions, Contrast&Care® today, and Dose&Care® launched at the beginning of 2017, Guerbet has completed its integrated offers so radiology centers may make the most of the technological advances available today.”, comments Levi Cheng, Director of the Imaging Solutions & Services Business Unit.
The commercial launch of Contrast&Care® will start at the beginning of 2018.
The Guerbet teams will present Contrast&Care® at all the upcoming international radiological congresses where specialists will perform interactive demonstrations (at the RSNA booth #1341 Hall A, the ECR, etc...).
