Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is defined as an acute, generally reversible decline in renal function that occurs 48-72 hours after intravascular injection of contrast medium
Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CIAKI), which is characterized by the development of acute renal insufficiency after exposure to a radiocontrast agent, is a major complication that has adverse outcomes after contrast medium
713 The second mechanism is the creation of an imbalance between tissue oxygen delivery and oxygen use which occurs due to a reduction of blood flow in the medulla caused by contrast medium
An X-ray procedure may take only a few minutes for a bone X-ray, or more than an hour for more involved procedures, such as those using a contrast medium
14] carried out a retrospective study analyzing 11,588 patients who underwent CT either without contrast or with a low osmolar contrast medium
(iohexol) or an iso-osmolar contrast medium
(iodixanol); they observed no significant difference in the incidence of AKI between the iso-osmolar contrast medium
and the control groups for all baseline SCr values; the incidence of AKI in the low osmolar contrast medium
group was similar to that of the control group up to an SCr level of 1.
In our unit, iobitridol (Xenetix) is used as contrast medium
In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effects of non ionic low osmolar contrast medium
administration on oxidant/antioxidant status and NO levels in rat kidney tissues.
Sonazoid, which is developed in close collaboration with GE Healthcare, the licensor, is a minimally invasive contrast medium
characterized by prolonged ability to maintain its contrasting attributes.
Coronary angiography and left ventriculographywere performed using just 80 cc lopromid (Ultravist 300, Schering AG, Germany): a nonionic low osmolar contrast medium
containing approximately 300 mg/mL iodide.
Myelography, radiographic examination of the spinal cord following injection of a contrast medium
, is a useful aid for the diagnosis of spinal-cord disease in mammals.
CT cisternography identified dehiscence of the left lateral sphenoid recess, which contained contrast medium
that had drained into the nasal cavity (figure 3).
The problematic samples had been collected from patients shortly after radiologic examinations requiring administration of iodinated radio-opaque contrast medium
(Visipaque[R] or Omnipaque[R]).
