Guerbet To Showcase Innovative Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging Solutions at RSNA 2018
New and Next-Level Management Products Available for Demonstration in Interactive Workstations Congratulates Avner Meoded, MD, Johns Hopkins University, as recipient of the Guerbet/RSNA Research Scholar Grant
PRINCETON, N.J., November 26, 2018 – Guerbet LLC USA, the U.S. affiliate of the global specialist in contrast media products and comprehensive end-to-end solutions for medical imaging, will highlight new and next-level product offerings and partnerships in contrast media, injectors, disposables, digital solutions, and services at the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Illinois.
At Guerbet’s booth 2558, interactive workstations will provide live demonstrations of novel clinical tools for diagnostic and interventional imaging, including:
• Contrast & Care®, a next-level contrast media injection management solution that enables imaging centers to collect, archive, examine and share data directly with Guerbet’s injectors to help radiologists with patient care, and;
• Imalogix, a new self-learning neural network that enables organizations to understand and benchmark best practices from the mass learnings in real time, across a network of providers to drive continuous improvement.
Guerbet will also highlight additional key milestones achieved this year, including:
• Product launches:
o SeQure® and DraKon™, two novel microcatheters for tumor and vascular aneurysm embolization procedures
o L-F Hydra Vision™ Digital Imaging System, a real-time digital X-ray imaging device in urological imaging
o Joined forces with the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) “Defining Our Future” campaign, an initiative to support the education, development, and empowerment of new and future medical imaging professionals.
Guerbet’s macrocyclic ionic contrast agent Dotarem (gadoterate meglumine) remains the first and only macrocyclic & ionic GBCA molecule approved by the FDA, recently surpassing its 85 millionth dose worldwide. Celebrating the five-year anniversary of Dotarem’s U.S. launch in March 2013 (and its first pediatric and adult injections in July and September 2013 respectively), all on the heels of Dotarem’s “under age 2” pediatric approval last September, Guerbet continues to grow its success story and make positive impacts in the field.
Guerbet also proudly celebrates the granting of the Guerbet/RSNA Research Scholar Grant, by the RSNA Research & Education Foundation to Avener Meoded, MD, of Johns Hopkins University. The $150,000 two-year grant will help fund Dr. Meoded’s research using a comprehensive “omics” approach in the study of brain neuroplasticity in pediatric arterial ischemic stroke.
“Guerbet is proud to support a grantee seeking to make advances in pediatric brain neuroplasticity and enhance medical research,” said Massimo Carrara, Guerbet Vice President for North America. “It is an area in which we look forward to expanding as we continue to grow.”
