Covidien's Optistar Elite contrast delivery system injects contrast media-related drugs into a patient’s vascular system to aid in obtaining diagnostic images when used with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging equipment.

The Optistar Elite aims to provide improved performance and ease of use, compared with the previous Optistar LE model. Among the features on the Optistar Elite injector is patency check, which aids in preventing extravasation, assists in reducing the potential of certain medical errors and helps enhance clinical and work flow efficiency.
