VILLEPINTE, France, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --



Presented for the first time at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR, Vienna, 7-10 March 2014), this unique, innovative solution enables Guerbet to broaden its range in the field of medical equipment and devices for the diagnostic imaging market.

Guerbet, the contrast agent and solutions specialist for medical imaging, announces the worldwide launch of FlowSens®, an innovative contrast agent injection solution used in X-ray (CT scan) medical examinations.

CE Marked in the first quarter of 2014, FlowSens® will initially be marketed in Europe (first in Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland) then gradually in other regions of the world.

FlowSens® and its associated disposables are designed to fit seamlessly into the organization of radiology services. Ergonomic and easy-to-use, FlowSens® aims at meeting the practical requirements of radiologists and radiographers.

Composed of a softbag injector, a complete range of associated disposables and services, the FlowSens® solution is the only one on the market which combines a hydraulic syringe-free injection system with intuitive usage and safeguarding of procedures at every stage of the injection. FlowSens® is compatible with ScanBag® and all types of contrast agent available on the market.

Guerbet Group CEO, Yves L'Epine declared, "We are very pleased to make available to radiology professionals a contrast agent injection solution which is the only one of its type in the world, developed in France by the Guerbet Group subsidiary Medex. This launch is in line with the Group's strategy of diversification into medical devices linked to the use of our contrast agents for diagnostic and/or interventional radiology."

FlowSens® targets a market segment with high growth potential. Its syringe-free hydraulic injection system and its clear advantages distinguish it from the existing competitors' offering (syringe & peristaltic based systems).
