Clear Direction. Mobility, Simplicity and Reliability.

The MEDRAD® Salient Contrast Injection System has been engineered to deliver safety and performance.


What is MEDRAD® Salient?

MEDRAD® Salient is a contrast media injection system designed for use during basic CT examinations, including contrast enhanced mammography. It is available* as single head and dual head system. MEDRAD® Salient Dual can flush with saline while the single head system injects contrast media only.


How does MEDRAD® Salient work?

An icon-driven, user-friendly interface allows clinicians to easily create customized protocols –up to 6 phases. The cordless configuration of MEDRAD® Salient means greater mobility without the need for electrical or data cables. Compared to a single head injector system, MEDRAD® Salient Dual provides improved peak contrast enhancement and controlled timing of contrast bolus1.

* MEDRAD® Salient is not available in Germany and the U.S.
