- Joined forces with the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) "Defining Our Future" campaign, an initiative to support the education, development, and empowerment of new and future medical imaging professionals.
Guerbet's macrocyclic ionic contrast agent Dotarem (gadoterate meglumine) remains the first and only macrocyclic and ionic GBCA molecule approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to the company, recently surpassing its 85 millionth dose worldwide. This year, Guerbet is celebrating the five-year anniversary of Dotarem's U.S. launch in March 2013 (and its first pediatric and adult injections in July and September 2013 respectively), all on the heels of Dotarem's "under age 2" pediatric approval last September.
Guerbet also celebrated the granting of the Guerbet/RSNA Research Scholar Grant, by the RSNA Research & Education Foundation to Avener Meoded, M.D., of Johns Hopkins University. The $150,000 two-year grant will help fund Meoded's research using a comprehensive "omics" approach in the study of brain neuroplasticity in pediatric arterial ischemic stroke.
