Safety of Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents: A Four Part Webcast Series

A review of the literature indicates an increased incidence of gadolinium deposition in the brain as a result of repeated contrast-enhanced MR imaging procedures. With a wide selection of gadolinium-based contrast agents available; imaging professionals must be aware of their chemical make-up when selecting the best agent for a particular study.

In this updated 4-Part webcast series, chaired by Lawrence N. Tanenbaum, MD FACR and featuring an esteemed faculty, which includes Dr. Kenneth Maravilla, Dr. Donna Roberts, Dr. Richard Semelka and Dr. Lawrence Tanenbaum; we review the current role of gadolinium-based contrast media in adult and pediatric patients through didactic presentation and roundtable discussion. In light of recent discoveries, faculty will review the characteristics of a gadolinium-based agent when making choices in patients with both normal and abnormal renal function.

These activities have been supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Guerbet, LLC.
