Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the abdomen and pelvis with use of gastrointestinal (GI) contrast agents is slowly emerging as a valuable diagnostic tool. In the past few years, considerable effort has been expended on developing an oral contrast agent to serve as a bowel marker during abdominal and pelvic imaging. Four major categories of agents have been studied: compounds with positive contrast-enhancing characteristics (ie, which increase signal intensity), which may be either miscible… CONTINUE READING
