Medrad has introduced a CT syringe loader that can fill contrast syringes outside the scanner room. By loading the amount of contrast agent needed specifically for each patient, the device promises to save scan room time and money. The product has an advantage over prefilled syringes, according to Medrad, by allowing staff to manage the contrast volume for each patient more effectively. The CT Syringe Loader, which is compatible with Medrad's EnVision, Vistron, and MCT Plus vascular injectors and syringes, can be mounted on the wall near contrast and supplies and can be quickly dismantled for cleaning.
