Contrast media in diagnostic radiology: recommendations for labels, package inserts, and dosage determination



Contrast media in diagnostic radiology: recommendations for labels, package inserts, and dosage determination



Ajr. American Journal of Roentgenology 129(1): 167-170



Recommendations are made for updating labels, package inserts, and dosage designation. These are based on the experience of the members of the Committee on Safety of Contrast Media of the International Society of Radiology and their collaborators in a prospective survey on adverse reactions to intravascularly administered contrast media. They are considered to be timely and an answer to a long unfilled need. It is felt that these recommendations reflect not only the opinion and concern of the committee but also that of the radiology community at large. These recommendations are of both medical and medicolegal import. Their application is in the best interests of progressive radiology and good patient care.
