Unicamp report found perfluorocarbon waste product in the blood of patients who died after performing the MRI, Hospital Vera Cruz, in Campinas.

Three patients died from pulmonary embolism after completion of the resonance cases considered, at the time, unique in the world by experts.

The perfluorocarbon is a toxic substance usually used inside balloons for examination in the intestine and can not enter the blood conrrente.

According to the results presented now, a nurse baffled flasks, which were not identified, and the substance injected in patients in place of the "contrast".

With proof, the police are investigating the responsibility of other employees in the storage of the products.

At the time of the deaths, the Secretary of Health of Campinas, Cármino de Souza said that the blood count of three patients reinforced the relationship of cause of death with chemical poisoning. "The test showed a significant reduction in the number of platelets, a fundamental component in the process of coagulation, and hemolysis," he said.
