Xenetix 350 : Loewe et al. European Radiology
This study of 310 patients undergoing an assessment of the aorta and the abdominal vascular tree with 64 rows scanner, demonstrates the same diagnostic efficacy for Xenetix and Iomeron, with a lower concentration of iodine for Xenetix.
The diagnostic efficacy was satisfactory to very satisfactory in 99.3% of cases with Xenetix 350 versus 99.4% with Iomeron 400. The equivalence of the 2 contrast agents has also been observed in terms of image quality and tolerance.
The concentration of iodine can be reduced without altering the diagnostic performance and have potential benefits in patients with impaired renal function.
