MRI scans with contrast can be very toxic. They use a heavy metal called GADOLINIUM!

Gadolinium is a contrast agent that is used in medical imaging procedures such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to enhance the visibility of internal organs and tissues. Common side effects of gadolinium contrast agents include:

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Headache

  • Dizziness

  • Skin rashes or itching

  • Injection site reactions (pain, swelling, redness)

In rare cases, gadolinium can also cause more serious side effects, such as:

  • Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), a condition that can lead to thickening and hardening of the skin and connective tissues.

  • Allergic reactions (difficulty breathing, hives, itching, swelling)

It is important to inform your doctor if you have a history of kidney problems, as this may increase the risk of NSF. Before undergoing a medical imaging procedure using gadolinium, discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor.
