Magnetic resonance imaging of liver with contrast

Active Ingredient: Gadoxetic acid

Indication for Gadoxetic acid

Population group: only adults (18 years old or older)

Gadoxetic acid is indicated for the detection of focal liver lesions and provides information on the character of lesions in T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Gadoxetic acid should be used only when diagnostic information is essential and not available with unenhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and when delayed phase imaging is required.

For this indication, competent medicine agencies globally authorize below treatments:

0.1 ml/kg

Route of admnistration


Defined daily dose

0.1 - 0.1 mL per kg of body weight

Dosage regimen

From 0.1 To 0.1 mL per kg of body weight once every day

Dosage considerations

It should be administered undiluted as an intravenous bolus injection at a flow rate of about 2 ml/sec. After the injection of the contrast medium the intravenous cannula/line should be flushed using sterile 9 mg/ml (0.9%) saline solution.

Active ingredient

Gadoxetic acid

Gadoxetic acid is a paramagnetic contrast agent for magnetic resonance imaging. The contrast-enhancing effect is mediated by gadoxetate (Gd EOB DTPA), an ionic complex consisting of gadolinium (III) and the ligand ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine-pentaacetic acid (EOB-DTPA).
