The contrast agents are either renal or hepatically excreted media, which stay in the intravascular/extracellular tissue compartment. The enhancement in the blood continues for as long as the contrast agent remains in the blood stream.
E.g. Dotarem®, Magnevist®, Omniscan®, ProHance®.

Short name: SHU 555 A, generic name: Ferucarbotran
A RES-directed MRI contrast agent (SPIO) made-up of a colloidal sol of iron oxide nanoparticles coated with carboxydextran (Resovist®, Cliavist™).
It is used for the detection and characterization of especially small focal liver lesions and offers the opportunity to make a reliable diagnosis at a very early stage of patients with suspected liver tumors.
Bayer Schering Pharma AG announced that it has received marketing approval for the liver-specific contrast agent Resovist® in Japan. See Contrast Agents and Superparamagnetic Contrast Agents.

(Gd) Gadolinium is a Lanthanide element that is paramagnetic in its trivalent state.
This paramagnetic substance is used for MR imaging because of the effect of strongly decreasing the T1 relaxation times of the tissues to which gadolinium has access. When injected during magnetic resonance imaging, gadolinium will tend to change signal intensities by shortening the T1 time in its surroundings.
The relaxivity of gadolinium is an important measure of its efficacy, which is dependent on the chemical properties of the complex. The gadolinium ion cannot be used in its chloride, sulfate, or acetate forms because of poor tolerance and low solubility in water in the neutral pH range. Although toxic by itself, gadolinium can be given safely in a chelated form such as DTPA, that still retains much of its strong effect on relaxation times (relaxivity).
See also Dotarem®, Gadovist®, MultiHance®, Omniscan®, OptiMARK®, and Contrast Agents, the info sheet gives an overview and more in-dept information about different types of MRI contrast agents.
