Gadolinium

Lea en español

GadoliniumGadolinium is a naturally occurring chemical element first discovered in 1880. Because of certain “paramagnetic” properties, Gadolinium has often been used in connection with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies, given intravenously to people before an MRI to act as a contrast agent, so that MRIs appear clearer. Studies show, though, that the use of Gadolinium, where patients are experiencing renal failure, can lead to an inflammatory condition known as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF). NSF is a skin condition that can lead to excessive fibrous tissue in the skin, eyes, joints and internal organs. In worst-case scenarios, it can result in kidney failure.
