This dinner meeting titled “ Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents in 2022: Dose, Relaxivity, and Safety” discusses the currently known clinical consequences of Gd retention and the safety of GBCA administration in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The purpose of this dinner meeting is to provide physicians, technologists, and other health care professionals with current clinical data to make informed decisions in their clinical settings.
This CME/CE dinner program is intended for healthcare professionals including Physicians, Technologists, Facility Managers, Researchers, and others.
Describe why the Gd+3 ion is inherently toxic
State how to calculate the volume to be administered for a particular molar concentration
Describe how relaxivity can be increased
List the two major chelate designs
Describe the chelate design with the lowest stability
List the ACR Grouping of CBCAs
Describe the currently known clinical consequences of Gd retention
Name the two classifications of Adverse Events with GBCAs
