Medrad awarded Novation contract for Continuum
Novation, the supply company for healthcare cooperative VHA Inc. and the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), has awarded Medrad Inc. a three-year contract for its Continuum MR Compatible Infusion System.

Introduced in 2002, Continuum allows caregivers to better manage MRI patients on infusion therapy, who historically would either be removed from the medication or remain connected to a non-MR compatible infusion pump outside the scanner room, according to Medrad. The company added two software enhancements in 2003 to automatically calculate and display the real-time required flow rate and program flow rate limits.
