Contrast media are used to improve internal images produced by MRI, CT scans, X-rays and allows radiologists to the difference between normal and diseased tissues. These are the substances, which significantly increase the quality of the image, without reacting to body tissues. They contrast the selected areas of the human body surrounding tissues, thereby, improving the image quality and visibility of blood vessels and other tissues.


In 2020, the neurological market segment dominated with the largest share. The rising prevalence of neurological disorders and high adoption of imaging systems in the advanced economies are largely responsible for the market growth for contrast media. The diagnostic evaluation of such disorders boosted the adoption of MRI-based contrast media to provide better images of neurons and associated malignancies.
