Allow Breast Feeding After MRI-Contrast
According to an article by Jack Newman in Canadian Family Physician April 2007 vol. 53 no. 4 630-631- "Evidence indicates unequivocally that the contrast media used for both magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography scans are excreted into breast milk in such small quantities that there is no concern at all for nursing babies. The contrast medium used for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans is gadopentetate. It is excreted into breast milk in extremely small amounts. Considering that we do MRI scans of small babies, concern about continuing breastfeeding after MRI makes no sense at all."
