“Contrast agents are much less nephrotoxic than previously thought”, said Aart van der the current ESUR Contrast Media Safety Committee (CMSC) guideline. Renal adverse reactions to gadolinium-based contrast agents B How long should there be between two iodine-based contrast media injections for routine. The Contrast Media Safety Committee of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology is proud to present the 10th version of its Contrast Agent Guidelines.

Iodinated Contrast Media and Blood interactions. Following administration of gadolinium-based agents to the mother during pregnancy, no neonatal tests are necessary.

Contrast media :

The effect of intraarterial IA application depends on the injection site: The CMSC has decided to regularize its mwdia of the terms ‘contrast agent’ and ‘contrast medium’ and there is a brief section on terminology a the start of the Guidelines. Intra-arterial injection with second pass renal exposure indicates that contrast agent reaches the renal arteries after dilution either in the pulmonary or peripheral circulation, e.

All contrast media have anticoagulant properties, especially ionic agents.

It provides the rationale for the guidelines in this booklet. Late skin reactions of the type which occur after iodine-based contrast media have not been described after gadolinium-based and ultrasound contrast media. In all patients use the smallest amount of contrast medium necessary for a diagnostic result.


Large doses of contrast medium given intra-arterially with first pass renal exposure. Gadolinium-based contrast media should only be used if the indication is vital and then only intermediate or low risk agents should be used. Iodinated contrast media should not be given to patients with manifest hyperthyroidism.

Patients not at increased risk. I agree to the Bayer Group Privacy Statement. Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. Previous late contrast medium reaction. Iodine-based contrast medium Hemodialysis to remove the contrast medium is unnecessary. Start volume expansion as early eaur possible before contrast medium administration see elective examination.

Symptomatic and similar vwrsion the management of other drug-induced skin reactions e. Preparation Before intravenous iodine- or gadolinium-based contrast medium: At risk patients see above. Patients undergoing therapy with radioactive iodine should not have received iodine-based contrast media for at least two months before treatment.

ESUR Update 2018

First line emergency drugs and instruments which should be in the examination room. Serum creatinine eGFR measurement and clinical assessment of patient before administration: Do not administer gadolinium-based contrast agents. Keep the ratio of iodine dose in gram iodine and absolute GFR below 1.

Before intra-arterial iodine-based contrast medium: Metformin is contraindicated and iodine-based contrast media should be avoided. We have modernized the layout to make it user-friendly as well as stylish.

Comments and questions are welcome eskr the ESUR webpage www. To reduce the risk. Iodine-based contrast medium Hemodialysis to remove the contrast medium is unnecessary for iodine-based contrast medium, but for gadolinium- based contrast medium.


Time of examination B. Conservative management is adequate meida most cases limb elevation apply ice packs careful monitoring If a serious injury is suspected, seek the advice of a surgeon. Risk Stratification Van der Molen made sure to point out the difference in contrast agent concentration entering the kidneys is dependent on the injection site: Previous allergic versoon to barium products.

However, dehydration is hard to examine, because there is no sound criteria for it, he added. For intravenous contrast medium and intra-arterial contrast medium administration with second pass renal exposure hydrate the patient either a with intravenous sodium bicarbonate 1.

Consider an alternative imaging method not using iodine-based contrast media.

Drugs and interventional devices that decrease the risk of thromboembolic complications during interventional procedures minimize the importance of the effects of contrast media. Some aspects have been adapted, but hydration remains a mainstay in kidney injury prevention.

Drug prophylaxis is generally not recommended. It is increased for high-osmolar agents and for repeated injections within verison to 72 hours.
