Premedication Protocol for IV Contrast
Contrast materials (also called contrast agents or contrast media) are used to improve the accuracy of medical images produced by x-rays, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Although rare, allergic reactions to IV contrast can occur in a minority of patients. At VIVA, we take a proactive stance on consulting with our referring physicians in order to prepare for IV contrast studies in advance. Our goal is to make medical imaging tests safe and comfortable for your patients.
