Medrad Rolls Out Extension Set for CT Power Injection


November 12, 2007

Medrad released the PRE Pressure-Rated Extension Set, a disposable tube set that attaches the patient catheter and the power injector tubing that is rated for CT power injection and specifically approved for Medrad CT contrast injection systems.

PRES is designed to reduce the risk of disposable extension set rupture during powered injection of contrast agent or saline when using Medrad’s CT injection systems, including the market-leading Stellant CT Injection System. According to the manufacturer, PRES allows clinicians to follow the FDA’s recommendation to use only vascular access devices designed to tolerate high pressure.
