Gadoxetate Disodium

    WARNING: This product is for research use only, not for human or veterinary use.

MedKoo CAT#: 564088

CAS#: 135326-22-6

Description: Gadoxetate Disodium is a liver-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent. Gadoxetate Disodium is preferentially taken up by normal functioning hepatocytes, so normal hepatic tissue is enhanced with MRI while tumor tissue is unenhanced.
