  Title Safety considerations of using gadolinium as a contrast agent for MRIs: A commentary
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2023 Jul-Sept;4(1):3
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial

Narrative abstract: Gadolinium is a contrast agent that has been used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for decades. It has historically been thought to be an innocuous substance that would be excreted from the body without any negative side effects. Emerging evidence is now suggesting gadolinium does have risks with patients that have renal issues, sensitivity to contrast agents, and it might persist after its use or have unintended cellular consequences. Regarding MRI diagnostics with the usage of contrast agents such as gadolinium, consideration of the risk benefit ratio is crucial and sometimes alternative options may be an important consideration.
