mri gadolinium

This past week has shown two varying opinions for the controversial MRI contrast agent, gadolinium. One source presents the FDA will not limit gadolinium based agents, but will continue to study the heavy metal, while a Mayo Clinic study shows preliminary results of gadolinium in postmortem pediatric brains. 

Gadolinium raises some concerns because it is a heavy metal that can be retained within the brain, bone, and skin. However at the moment there is only one condition which relates to directly to gadolinium retention, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF). This condition leads to harden skin and stiff joints in those with kidney conditions. 

So is gadolinium dangerous or not? While there is no definitive answer yet, the question alone ought to signal we need to take a closer look at the quality of healthcare. 

As professionals, our goal is to always put the patient first. At Sound Imaging, we do this by ensuring safety and patient satisfaction with our line of MRI Accessories. Increase safety with the SAMM M.D., a motion detection MRI camera system. Make the MRI comfortable with MRI Visors, the portable MRI video google system.
