Improvements in Diagnostic Imaging Capabilities Enhancing PFC Uptake?

Perfluorocarbons have enjoyed an important position in the healthcare domain- being recognized as synthetic oxygen carriers among other applications. Of late, the diagnostic imaging sector has opened up credible opportunities for perfluorocarbons.

Perfluorocarbons enhancement effects are detectable by ultrasound and magnetic resonance, as well as by standard radiography and CT. Out of all PFCs, perfluoroctylbromide (PFOB) is deployed at a CT contrast agent to enhance the blood pool, and as both a CT and an ultrasound contrast agent to enhance liver, spleen, abscesses, infections and tumors.

PFC enable imaging is highly effective in locating inflammatory cells. A series of human clinical trials have established that Fluosol, a popular ultrasound contrast agent, produced tumor enhancement at 1.6 g/kg, permitting the visualization of previously measured lesions, and liver and spleen enhancement at 2.4 g/kg.
