We developed a new process for the manufacturing of a sterile, packaged hydrogel bandage, based on an interpenetrating structure of calcium alginate, agar and polyvinylpyrrolidone. This new process makes the treatment of patients suffering for difficult wounds easier, has a beneficial effect on the tissue repair process and expresses a better resistance to mechanical deformations compared to products on the market. In this work we present the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) characterization (T1, T2 and ADC) at 2.35 T of the new hydrogel sterile bandage, considering a commercial hydrogel (Neoheal) as a standard reference.
