Contrast Media is a user-friendly app designed by academic radiologists to help you choose the safest contrast agent (iodine or gadolinium) when imaging patients with renal impairment. It is an easy and convenient way to help healthcare professionals in their daily practices, including nurses, physician assistants, radiology technologists, radiographers, medical students, interns, residents, clinicians, surgeons, oncologists, nephrologists, urologists, gastroenterologists, radiologists and other medical specialists.
Choosing the right agent for the right patient remains a challenge, and one should always weigh the risks and benefits of each option. This app provides a simple and practical approach to minimize the risk of developing NSF and CIN.
Features: • Simple, secure and intuitive. • Estimates the risks of NSF and CIN after intravenous (IV) administration of contrast media (not intra-arterial injection!). * Risk stratification and recommended action based on eGFR. • Simple and practical recommendations on how to proceed in patients with renal impairment referred for CECT/CEMRI. • An updated overview of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN). • Contrast Media Facts (more information about CM). * No ads, subscriptions or in-app purchasing. * No Internet connection required. It is fully functional when offline. * No login or sign up required and no personal data collected from the user. • Includes sources of information (References)
Contrast Media App was one of the top Apps in 2017 according to Diagnostic Imaging Magazine.
Article published on Pubmed "This app aggregates multiple eGFR calculators into a single app and integrates text-based contrast imaging decision support. Data for both CIN and NSF for respective contrast media subclasses are conveniently centralized and summarized, with tailored presentation of evidence-based risk estimates and suggested protocol guidance for a given eGFR”.
