September 6, 2007

GE Healthcare Medical Diagnostics’ VISIPAQUE is reportedly the only isosmolar contrast medium (IOCM) available in the U.S. With an osmolality equal to that of blood, VISIPAQUE was designed for patient safety and comfort and is also formulated with sodium and calcium in a ratio equivalent to blood.

VISIPAQUE is FDA approved for use in children over one year of age and is approved for a broad range of diagnostic procedures requiring intravascular contrast, such as coronary angiography, CT, IVP and venography.
