Features 
Description Feridex I.V. (generic name: ferumoxides) is Advanced Magnetics' contrast agent for use with MRI for the detection of liver lesions. It is the first organ-specific MRI contrast agent to be marketed worldwide. Through the liver's natural function, the agent is taken up by macrophages found only in healthy liver cells but not in most tumors. The liver is a principal site for metastasis of primary cancer originating in other parts of the body, particularly colon cancer, which is a common cancer in the United States. The ability to identify metastatic tumors in the liver has a significant impact on physicians' treatment plans for cancer. Because treatment plans can vary widely based on the level of metastatic disease, proper staging is a critical component of patient management. Diagnosis of metastases at an early stage can be difficult because small tumors are frequently not accompanied by detectable physical symptoms. We believe that contrast-enhanced MRI exams using Feridex I.V. enable the imaging of liver lesions that may not be visible with CT scanning or ultrasound, the most widely used techniques for liver imaging. Tissues such as metastases, primary liver cancer, cysts and various benign tumors, adenomas and hyperplasia retain their native signal intensity, so the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue is increased. Through the use of Feridex I.V., liver scans may be performed using contrast-enhanced MRI instead of, or in addition to, CT scanning and ultrasound.
