What Is Gadolinium and Why Is it Dangerous?

Gadolinium contrast is a dye that is injected into the body before an MRI in order to improve the images taken during the scan. (It is also used for MRAs and other radiographic scans). This dye contains the elemental metal gadolinium, which spreads throughout the body from the injection site and is absorbed into the cells in different areas.

Despite its benefits during radiographic scans, gadolinium contrast has been known to cause a condition called Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF). This disease has a number of painful symptoms, including:

  • Toughened skin
  • Darkened skin
  • New or mysterious cuts on the surface of the skin
  • Hard, sinewy nodes
  • Plaque on the skin
  • Diaphragmatic fibrosis
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Abdominal fibrosis
  • Toughened leg or thigh muscles

Unfortunately, NSF is progressive and currently incurable. Patients who receive gadolinium contrast injections can develop the deadly condition after receiving just one dose.

How a Dangerous Drug Lawyer Can Help Those Affected by Gadolinium Contrast

When gadolinium contrast results causes a recipient to develop NSF, the outcome is deadly. Patients with NSF experience the progressive hardening of necessary muscles and organs, such as the lungs and abdomen, to such an extent that they can no longer walk, breathe, eat, speak, or live on their own. This can create extensive financial loss for affected individuals and their families, and our team at Christian & Christian is here to make it right.

We know that no amount of compensation can make up for tragic suffering and unnecessary death that result from this dangerous contrast agent. However, no family should have to bear the financial weight of the resulting conditions on their own. Our dangerous drug attorneys in Greenville are here to ensure you are given the opportunity to hold the drug manufacturer, pharmaceutical company, and/or other involved party responsible.
