Why Dye Volume Matters

The amount of dye (contrast) used during angiographic imaging procedures increases the patient's risk for dye-related kidney damage known as Contrast Induced Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), also referred to as Contrast Induced Nephropathy (CIN). Patients acquiring this condition as a result of their procedure can have poor outcomes while increasing hospital cost.

Current medical guidelines established for at-risk patients encourage physicians to use the least amount of dye possible, while allowing for necessary image quality. Osprey's technology is the first to provide physicians with a uniform, repeatable and measurable way to reliably minimize contrast use.
