Gadolinium contrast dye is often injected into the veins of people who are about to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan or a computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan. The dye enhances the capacity of the imaging scanners to produce a clear picture of results. Unfortunately, the contrast dye can create a severe reaction in patients whose bodies cannot tolerate the foreign material in the blood stream.
Despite safety measures taken by medical professionals, allergic reaction can occur. If you or a loved one suffered a health problem due to contrast dye injection, our law firm in Providence, Rhode Island, can assist you. Call us for a free consultation: 401-354-7233.
Doctors And Hospital Staff Must Be Aware Of The Risks
Doctors must be aware of possible reactions to the dye and avoid using it, unless necessary. When the dye is injected, the patient must know what symptoms to expect and report in the event of a reaction. Doctors and hospital staff must be ready to intervene with counteracting drugs upon the first sign of a negative reaction, or the patient may suffocate and die.
