Informed Consent for Gadolinium Administration
As part of your scheduled MRI examination, you will receive an intravenous injection of gadolinium, a contrast agent that will provide additional diagnostic information for your physician.
A saline solution will drip through the intraveous line to prevent clotting until the contrast material is injected at some point during the exam. Unlike contrast agents used in x-ray studies, MRI contrast agents do not contain iodine and therefore only rarely cause allergic reactions or other problems. If you have a history of kidney failure and are scheduled to undergo a procedure which requires gadolinium, you may be at risk for a rare condition known as Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis or Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NSF/NFD). NSF/NFD may result in damage to body organs and possible death.
Although gadolinium has been found to be a very sage contrast agent, there is always the risk of a reaction. These reactions can range from minor ones such as nausea, warmth at the injection site, headache dizziness, itching, flushing, and hives to more severe reations such as cardiac arrhythmias, shortness of breath, wheezing, convulsions, unresponsiveness, or even death. These life-threatening reactions are exceedingly rare, occurring in only 0.01% - 0.001% of cases. The medical personnel in charge of your exam are prepared and trained to respond to these types of reactions.
Alternatives to using intravenous contrast are available. These procedures may be able to provide the necessary diagnostics information. Please ask to speak with the technologist or supervising physician should you have any questions regarding an alternative imaging procedure.
By signing this document, you agree that you have read this form, understand the information above, and have had any questions answered. In addition, you agree that you: 1) have been informed of the purpose of using the contrast agent, 2) understand the risks, benefits, and possible complications associated with the contrast agent, 3) are aware of possible alternatives to the contrast agent and 4) have been given the right to refuse to consent to the procedure.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE AND GIVE MY CONSENT TO HAVE THE CONTRAST ADMINISTERED.
