2.1  Dosing and Imaging Instructions

MRI of the CNS

The recommended dose of MultiHance for MRI of the CNS is 0.1 mmol/kg (0.2 mL/kg) administered as a rapid bolus intravenous injection. To ensure complete injection of the contrast medium, follow the injection with a saline flush of at least 5 mL. Imaging of the CNS can be performed starting immediately after the bolus injection of MultiHance.

MRA of Renal and Aorto-ilio-femoral Vessels

‚ÄčFor MRA examination, the recommended dose is 0.1 mmol/kg (0.2 mL/kg) administered as a rapid bolus intravenous injection followed by at least 20 mL saline flush either manually or using an automatic injector system. Start imaging immediately after the administration of MultiHance, with scan delay calculated by test bolus or automatic bolus detection technique. If an automatic contrast detection pulse sequence is not used for bolus timing, then a test bolus injection of 1-2 mL of MultiHance should be used to calculate the appropriate scan delay.
