BriteVu contrast agent perfused human cadaver brain

BriteVu with Benninger technique can be used to perfuse the head and brain of a human cadaver to enhance MRI images.  CT images, highlighting the BriteVu perfused vasculature, from the same cadaver are interspersed through the MRI video. Because BriteVu is mixed with water, it serves as a positive contrast with some MRI studies.  Additionally, gadolinium can be added to the BriteVu mix to improve MRI contrast.  BriteVu perfused with Echols technique for animals and Benninger technique for cadavers can be CT and MRI scanned post-perfusion to increase the amount of data collected.  BriteVu perfused with Benninger technique cadavers are being used to study normal, aberrant and pathologic anatomy.

This cadaver was perfused courtesy of Dr Brion Benninger MD, President, Alps Innovative Medicine (AIM), and scanned by Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital Radiology services.
