What is Gadolinium? Plus a New FDA Retention Warning

Gadolinium is a liquid, man-made heavy-metal substance used in MRI and MRA scans. It is part of a gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA), which is used to make images in MRI scans clearer. Gadolinium-based contrast agents are given via an intravenous injection that generally takes between 10 and 30 seconds.

UK to Remove Two Gadolinium Contrast Agents from Market

UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has announced that it will remove two gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) from the market in the wake of a review that found some patients are at risk of retaining the heavy-metal. The announcement was made on December 14, 2017, and will take effect February 1, 2018. Meanwhile, other gadolinium contrast agents will have their use limited.
