Any molecule used to measure organ perfusion in conjunction with imaging.
Characteristics of good perfusion agents:
to be admitted by the perfused tissue in proportion to perfusion,
to remain strictly intravascular, or
diffuse freely throughout the tissue of interest.
Perfusion agents used in MRI are small Gd-chelates (they do not cross blood brain barrier, but extravasate quickly into extracellular space in other organs) and SPIOS.

[ Clariscan™ was also the name of an contrast agent under development by Amersham Health around the year 2000 which doesn't reach the market: '(An iron-based contrast agent with large molecular size, which prevents diffusion into body tissues and was developed for MR imaging of the liver (taken up by macrophages), tumor microvasculature and microvessel permeability. The blood half live of the particles with 11-20 nm diameter is 3-4 hours. See also NC100150 Injection and Ultrasmall Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide)'.
The new developed Clariscan™ by GE Healthcare is a totally different contrast agent.]
