Shortage of Contrast for Imaging Services

Because of a global shortage of iodinated contrast material (Omnipaque) caused by temporary overseas manufacturing disruptions, ChristianaCare is taking steps to preserve supply so that it remains available for the most time-sensitive and urgent patient needs. (Learn more in our frequently asked questions.)

Omnipaque contrast is the most widely used contrast material for CT scans and radiographic examinations at ChristianaCare facilities. It is also used for cardiac imaging and interventions, and in the GI lab, Surgicenter and other settings.

The shortage is expected to last several weeks, and likely into the summer months.

Hospitals and health care organizations worldwide are managing the effects of the shortage and the impact to patient care.

ChristianaCare is making every effort to meet the needs of patients who need this product in their procedures. We are working individually with physicians to prioritize those patients with the most urgent needs.

Wherever possible, we are using alternative contrast material and limiting its use to ensure adequate supplies for time sensitive and emergent exams. It is possible that some elective procedures that use this product will need to be delayed.

ChristianaCare will continue to look for options to minimize disruptions created by the shortage, as we serve our community as expert, caring partners in health.

If addiction has a grip on you or a loved one, you don’t need to fight it on your own. The Project Recovery team offers professional outpatient treatment for substance use, with no judgment, only support. We can be the lifeline that you need during difficult times.

Your team will include a psychiatrist, counselor and social worker, who will meet with you to perform a complete assessment of your health and your substance use concern.

Then together they will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that can put you on the path to a substance-free life.
We offer:

  • Individual, group and family therapy.
  • Medication-assisted treatment.
  • Your own case manager, who will make sure you have the resources you need to get well.
  • Smoking cessation programs.
  • Crisis support.
  • Ongoing consultation and coordination with your doctor or other providers, as part of our team approach to care.

If you need help recovering from substance use, e-mail us at projectrecovery@christianacare.org or call us at 302-320-9650. We accept insurance and use a sliding fee scale.
