SPECIAL CONTRASTED STUDIES

H39A2566
ESOF

A contrast study refers to the use of contrast media so that the radiologist can better visualize the tissues or organs to be examined. 

 

Radiological contrast media, also called contrast agents or diagnostic aids, are chemical substances that are used to illuminate the study because, when introduced into the body, they produce changes in a radiographic image due to their ability to block or absorb radiation. ionizing This allows a better visualization of certain structures, organs and functional processes in the organism.

It is very important to follow all the instructions of the medical, technical and nursing staff. If you suffer from diabetes, are pregnant or suspect of such, suffer from any disease or are under medical prescription, it is very important to notify your doctor
