Contrast Induced Nephropathy

"In Radiology 2008;248:97-105 Shaun A. Nguyen et al compared effects of iso-osmolality contrast with a low-osmolality agent on renal function and concluded Intravenous contrast material application in high-risk patients is unlikely to be associated with permanent adverse outcomes. SCr levels after contrast material administration are lower in iodixanol than iopromide groups."

Hmmm you should look into the total data for CIN - contrast induced nephropathy. It is the dirty little secret of CT scan. We hurt people's kidneys in about 5% of cases
