In vivo renal imaging

ExiTron P

In vivo renal imaging in mice via contrast enhanced CT using a novel polymeric contrast agent

In this study we report on a CT method involving the use of the novel iodine containing polymeric agent, ExiTron P, that enables in vivo visualization of the kidneys in small animals with a high contrast efficiency as well as optimal biocompatibility By providing contrast in the kidneys that persists for a relatively long period, the contrast agent facilitates studies of kidney structure and function Since the agent is completely eliminated from the body via renal excretion within 3 hours, it can be utilized in longitudinal imaging studies where multiple injections are required.
