About this book

This volume highlights and broadens our understanding of the correct use and the possible contraindications of contrast agents applied in radiology. Written by experts in the field, it not only focuses on the chemistry, physiochemical properties and pharmacokinetics of both iodinated and gadolinium-containing contrast agents, but also on the relevant safety issues such as

  • frequency of their short- and long-term side effects and ways to avoid them
  • nephrotoxicity risk related to the iodinated contrast agents
  • NSF (nephrogenic systemic fibrosis)
  • accumulation of gadolinium in the brain
  • use of contrast agents in pediatric patients and pregnancy

It also includes essential data on the use of contrast agents, such as scanning protocols, in the context of various clinical conditions.

This comprehensive manual addresses all professionals involved in radiological imaging and is an invaluable tool for radiologists and technologists, as well as for residents and clinicians.
