The first non-ionic X-ray contrast agent in 1981, the first high-relaxation MRI agent in the 1990s, and the ultrasound contrast agent with the largest number of indications in the 2000s. Recently, Bracco has launched a second generation MR agent and is continuing its efforts to innovate further.


 “With MR, we are working on contrast media with different pragmatic metals in order to make them more sustainable” he said. “In PET, we don’t only want to target PSMA, but also, for instance, the fibroblast activation protein, and we want to move ultrasound into the era of precision medicine.

Fabio also emphasized the crucial role of R&D in driving innovation forward, with a focus on sustainability and precision medicine. 
The aging population will lead to more examinations to take care of older people, and a reduced number of people paying for that any patient that needs a Contrast-Enhanced procedure must have the procedure (…). In our manufacturing, we have to adopt very innovative processes and we have to make it all sustainable.
