Does Radiology Contrast Medium Matter? To Fragile Cancer Patients, Yes

Given the choice of contrast medium for a computed tomography (CT) scan, most patients wouldn’t know the difference between the two iodine-based options commonly used in cancer cases. But for some patients, particularly in the already fragile and potentially compromised cancer patient, it is important to be aware that iodated contrast media has been linked to kidney impairment and a condition known as Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN).

Toffaletti, together with Craig Rackley, MD, led a popular workshop on Sunday for the third year in a row titled, “Guidance for Evaluating the Hypoxemic Patient in the Critical Care Setting.”
