IV Contrast Media

Due to the lockdown imposed by the local authorities to contain the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in the city of Shanghai, China, the GE Healthcare production facility for iodinated contrast media in Shanghai experienced an unexpected, temporary shutdown. This shutdown has created supply pressure on Omnipaqueâ„¢ (iohexol) products.

The Supply Chain Resource Council (SCRC) has issued a special report highlighting the expanding shortage of GE Healthcare contrast media. We're providing the report to AHRMM members along with the formal announcement from GE Healthcare regarding contrast availability. Included in the Supply Chain Resource Council (SCRC) report are conservation tactics from the field that we are sharing to inform your strategies.
