We are committed to you, your patients, and their procedures. Because of this, we have taken steps to help ensure that we can meet your growing patient demand with a continual supply of contrast media (CM).
Did you know that the key component of iodinated CM is actually a restricted resource?
Both our primary API production and secondary filling and finishing capacity increased by more than 50% from 2013 to 2018.1
API, active pharmaceutical ingredient.
To meet the demand of our customers, we have a broad portfolio of products across different modalities.
As the global demand for X-ray contrast media products has increased by more than 20% in the last three years,2 we have strategically planned ways to help secure our supply of products.
With rapid patient and procedural growth, the demand for iodinated X-ray contrast media (CM) is at risk of outpacing supply.
As one of the world’s largest users of iodine, we have long-term agreements in place with global suppliers to help ensure that we continue to reliably supply one-third of the world’s X-ray CM.2
