Consider an alternative test not requiring a gadolinium-based contrast agent. Patch and delayed reading intradermal tests may be useful to confirm a late skin reaction to contrast medium and to study cross- reactivity patterns with other agents.

Clinical features of NSF. Following administration of gadolinium-based agents to contrawt mother during pregnancy, no neonatal tests are necessary. Large doses of contrast medium given intra-arterially with first pass renal exposure.

Late adverse reactions to intravascular iodinated contrast media. Prophylaxis is generally not necessary. To reduce the risk. Discuss the need to stop nephrotoxic drugs with the referring physician.
