Evidence Based Guideline: Contrast Induced Nephropathy (CIN) and Iodinated Contrast Media-Induced Toxicity

Brief Description: This guideline was developed primarily for non-emergent studies. Due to urgent need for clinical insights from imaging, further communication between the requesting clinician and the radiology attending physician may be required. This guideline discusses the prevention and management of contrast-induced nephropathy. Specific recommendations are provided on when to properly hold certain medications as well as recommendations for prevention of contrast-induced reactions. Further guidance is provided on management of acute reactions related to contrast, including tissue damage from extravasation.
