November 19, 2007 - E-Z-EM recently introduced its new point of care renal function EZ Chem Blood Analyzer and plans to showcase it at the RSNA show in Chicago Nov. 28-30.
The convenient, point-of-care (POC), hand-held device analyzes a finger prick sample of blood for creatinine levels — an important indicator of a patient’s renal function. The test can be performed in the imaging suite, with results available in as little as 30 seconds. Evaluating a patient’s kidney function can help determine their ability to safely receive IV contrast prior to CT and MR imaging, an important precaution for patients with risk factors such as diabetes, known kidney impairment, and advanced age. In addition, EZ Chem also features GFR result calculation and display.
