What Is Gadolinium?
Gadolinium is a contrast agent that is injected into the blood stream for the purpose of highlighting abnormal tissue during MRI and MRA scans. When gadolinium is injected into a patient's bloodstream, it circulates and collects in abnormal tissues, showing up brightly in the scans.
What Is the Danger?
While gadolinium has proved effective for many patients, it poses a risk to those with advanced kidney disease. An FDA warning cited gadolinium as a cause of a rare disease known as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF).
Symptoms of NSF include:
- Hardening of the skin
- Yellow spots on the whites of the eyes
- Deep bone pain
- Scarring on the internal organs
- Respiratory problems
Since NSF is a newly discovered disease, the symptoms and treatments are not fully known. It is believed that its symptoms, when combined with other conditions, can be life threatening.
