Information on the administration of contrast media and intravenous administration. If you have previously received iodinated contrast media (kidney staining, vascular staining) and any complaints or complications, you should report this before testing. If the symptom is an allergic reaction, you should not receive iodinated contrast media.

Allergy to iodine-containing drugs and skin disinfectants does not automatically mean that the body also has an allergy to venous contrast media.

If you are taking a medicine containing * metformin * for your diabetes, it should be stopped two days before the test and should not be taken for another 2 days after the test. Please consult your GP about how to suspend and the diet you need.

The administered contrast medium is largely excreted by the kidneys, so increased fluid intake in the pre- and post-test period (1-2 days) is very important to prevent renal damage.

Therefore, it is recommended that renal function be monitored before testing, especially over the age of 70, after previous renal disease, renal protein depletion, diabetes, hypertension, gout, or when taking drugs that impair kidney function, when renal impairment is more common.

If you have known renal impairment, we may be able to decide if you can receive a contrast agent based on a fresh (within 7 days) or another laboratory test within one month. (According to the recommendation of the European Society of Urologists, the so-called eGFR value should be 45 ml / min / 1.73 m2.)

To clarify any discrepancies as accurately as possible, intravenous iodinated contrast media may be used, requiring discontinuation of metformin tablets 48 hours before and 48 hours after the study.

Summary of contrast material

  • Do not eat 2 hours before the tests, the intravenous contrast agent is largely excreted by the kidneys, so it is recommended to drink plenty of fluids before and after (2.5-3.5 liters of water or sugar-free fluid per day).
  • Because of the above, it's important to know if your kidneys are working normally, so please bring a lab test that is more than a month old, which also looked at kidney function values.
  • Contrast consumed during the test may produce symptoms of diarrhea, which is normal. In rare cases, iodinated contrast media * may cause complications and allergic reactions.
  • If this has happened to you before, be sure to report it! Imaging is performed by an X-ray device and is not performed during pregnancy.
  • Be sure to report if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant!
