Some studies require an oral or intravenous medication called Contrast Medium, which allows better visualization of structures or fluids within the body. If it is necessary to apply the intravenous contrast medium, the nurse will channel the vein. 

When contrast media is given, some patients may experience nausea, flushing, a feeling of warmth, and/or headache. Sometimes a patient may experience an allergic reaction, for which we have a permanent doctor who evaluates and treats this type of adversity. If the patient ever feels anything strange, it is important to report it to the technologist or nurse immediately.
