Whether or not you need a contrasting liquid or injection depends on the type of study your physician has ordered. A contrasting agent containing iodine, often called “dye” helps the radiologist to see more definition of the tissues and to visualize the blood supply to internal organs. The contrasting agent is administered by our staff intravenously.
The iodine-containing “dye” are generally quite safe. Our staff will screen your medical history to determine if there is any risk of adverse reactions to the contrasting agent.
