(EMAILWIRE.COM, February 02, 2009 ) New York, NY - Lawyer Central recently released a new legal resource center dedicated to gadolinium MRI contrast dyes. Recent medical evidence has linked the use of gadolinium based contrast dyes to serious illnesses in MRI patients with kidney problems.
Gadolinium is a paramagnetic metal ion that is often used in MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging) and other types of imaging technology as a contrast agent. Gadolinium based contrast agents enhance images and make it easier for doctors to detect abnormalities in a patientÂ’s organs, tissue, or blood vessels. However, However, in 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a black box warning for MRI contrast agents that contain gadolinium. This warning came after a link was found between gadolinium and Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis, a potentially fatal disease, in patients with existing kidney conditions.
The Gadolinium Contrast Dye Resource Center features detailed information on a number of important topics related to gadolinium lawsuits. The symptoms, causes, and treatment of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF), information about the five gadolinium contrast agents that have been approved by the FDA, and the FDA warnings that were later issued for these products are among the subjects explained. Additional information about gadolinium side effects, gadolinium lawsuits, and MRI risks is also available. A frequently asked questions section provides answers to common queries about the potential health problems associated with gadolinium exposure.
