Riverdene Healthcare was founded in 2014, based on a need to expand the GE Healthcare Pharmaceutical Diagnostics portfolio of products in the SADC region. Riverdene Healthcare was chosen by GE Healthcare as a Sales and Marketing agency for these diagnostic contrast media products. Riverdene has expanded into the supply of Injector pumps, syringes and lines for contrast administration.
What is Contrast Media?
GE Healthcare – Evolution Of Contrast Media
Radiographic contrast is the degree of density difference between two areas on a radiograph. Contrast makes it easier to distinguish features of interest, such as defects, from the surrounding area. Contrast materials, also called contrast agents or contrast media, are used to improve pictures of the inside of the body produced by x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and ultrasound. They are used to assist the radiologist to distinguish normal from abnormal conditions. When introduced into the body prior to an imaging exam, contrast materials make certain structures or tissues in the body appear different on the images than they would if no contrast material had been administered.
