August 8, 2020 As concerns about the safety of gadolinium-based MRI contrast persist, radiologists should know that they have a number of alternatives to gadolinium, according to presentations on August 9 at the Society for MR Radiographers & Technologists (SMRT) virtual meeting. 207.180.211.132. Gadolinium-based contrast agents increase diagnostic performance for detection of recurrent soft-tissue sarcoma. This novel agent, based on the essential nutrient manganese, has strong potential as a safer alternative to currently used contrast agents December 28, 2020 — Adding a contrast-enhancing agent to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) significantly improves image quality and allows radiologists who interpret MRI scans to pick up subtle "It is based on balanced, steady-state acquisition," Huang explained. The recommended dose for MRI contrast agents is typically 0.1–0.3mmol/kg and requires gram quantities of gadolinium-based drugs in the clinic. October 29, 2020 — Contrast agents used to improve views of the heart on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) carry a very low risk of allergic reactions, vomiting and other acute adverse events, according to a large study from Europe published in Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging. Currently, gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) are used for this purpose, but recently concerns have been raised about the long-term safety of the gadolinium … Gadolinium contrast agents help improve the quality of MRI scans. Contrast-to-dose relationship of gadopiclenol, an MRI macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent, compared with gadoterate, gadobenate, and gadobutrol in a rat brain tumor model. Agents specific for tissues such as the liver, pancreas, adrenals, cancerous tumors, and even the insides of cells and neuronal tracts as well as non-specific agents have been developed and tested in animal models. While there are still questions that need to be answered about gadolinium, it can't hurt to find ways to reduce its use, especially in certain patient populations, according to Dr. Susie Huang, PhD, of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. The majority of cardiac MRI exams use intravenous gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) to improve visualization of … Not logged in Avoid use of GBCAs in these patients unless the diagnostic information is essential and not available with non-contrasted MRI or other modalities. 15:10 … Side effects include nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) which is associated with the administration of intravenous gadolinium. GBCAs were formulated with organic chelates designed to … "I think that the question of gadolinium really has to be taken in the context of the diagnostic question that is being asked and how the images will change the management of the patient," Huang said. The above results suggested that the prepared SIONPs agent responded positively to GSH, and can be potentially severed as a responsive MRI contrast agent by taking advantages of aggregation-enhanced T2 contrast effect of iron oxide nanoparticles. Information on the toxicity, relaxivity, image enhancement, and tissue specificity of agents is discussed here. Linear GBCAs are … Gadolinium deposition in the brain is a phenomenon that pediatric radiologists are aware of, noted Michael Kean, who followed Huang's talk at SMRT 2020. Pointing to data from a study published last year in Radiology in which investigators concluded that the use of a GBCA at follow-up MRI did not modify the diagnosis of interval disease progression in patients with MS, Huang described the results as evidence for more restrictive use of GBCAs. "One study showed higher rates [of gadolinium contrast use] in the first two weeks of pregnancy, probably because the patients did not know they were pregnant," Weinreb said. At least one-third of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans are performed with a contrast agent known as Gadolinium to enhance the quality of the image. The only class of contrast agents approved for use with MRI in the U.S. is based on the heavy metal gadolinium, which is typically excreted through a patient's urine after an MRI is completed. Kean noted that radiologists may consider options in the future such as deep learning as a strategy to enable decreased gadolinium dose for contrast-enhanced brain MRI, as well as possible alternatives to gadolinium such as ferumoxytol.

Concerns around gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) include both gadolinium deposition disease, a controversial term that refers to the retention of small amounts of gadolinium in the body long after MRI scans take place, and nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), a debilitating disease that occurs in individuals with compromised kidney function. GBCAs are classified as either linear or macrocyclic based on the type of ligand used.

In: Gregoriadis G (ed) Liposome Technology Entrapment of Drugs and Other Materials, vol II. Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) have provided much needed image enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) important in advancement of disease diagnosis and treatment. MRI contrast agents contain a rare earth metal called gadolinium that interacts with the magnetic field emitted by the MRI machines. Marlborough, US – November 24, 2020 – GE Healthcare has received U.S. FDA approval of its macrocyclic gadolinium-based MRI contrast agent, Clariscan (gadoterate meglumine), in pre-filled syringes. Many patients who have received a gadolinium contrast agent during an MRI filed a lawsuit after the long-term effects of this substance devastated their bodies. Researchers have … Two manganese(II)-based agents, the liver-specific agent manganese(II)-dipyridoxal diphosphate (Teslascan®) and an oral agent containing manganese(II) chloride (Lumen Hance®), and one ferric ammonium citrate-containing oral agent (FerriSeltz®) are available clinically for human use. Being an excellent candidate for drug delivery and diagnostic systems, Hyaluronic acid (HA) (0.1 to 0.7%w/v) has been chosen as a GAG model, and Gd-DTPA (0.01 to 0.2 mM) as a relevant MRI contrast agent. In addition to agents designed for use in living systems, contrast agents that measure pH and redox reactions in non-living systems have also been investigated and will be discussed. Still another novel noncontrast method is quiescent-interval single-shot (QISS) imaging, which has been found to supply strong diagnostic performance. © 2020 Springer Nature Switzerland AG. Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc. Radiologists are being particularly vigilant with respect to steering clear of gadolinium when imaging patients who are pregnant, as the safety of GBCAs in pregnancy has not been established, noted Dr. Jeffrey Weinreb of Yale University.

Free Gd+3 is toxic, but the chelation makes the products safe while maintaining the imaging characteristics. Gadolinium(III) containing MRI contrast agents (often termed simply "gado" or "gad") are the most commonly used for enhancement of vessels in MR angiography or for brain tumor enhancement associated with the degradation of the blood–brain barrier.For large vessels such as the aorta and its branches, the gadolinium(III) dose can be as low as 0.1 mmol per kg body mass. Risk factor is acute or chronic renal failure. But Huang noted that time-of-flight MR angiography does not have good yield for imaging tortuous/oblique vessels where the flow is not perpendicular to the imaging plane, in patients who are motion prone due to long acquisition times, or in the presence of slow or turbulent flow for signal loss can occur, which can be confounded as potential stenosis or even occlusion. Weinreb cited one investigation that detected elevated rates of GBCA exposure during the initial weeks of pregnancy compared with subsequent weeks.
