CT IV CONTRAST INFORMED CONSENT
This x-ray examination is performed by using a special computer which allows us to view internal organs that we are not able to visualize using standard x-ray.
Some CT examinations require the injection of a contrast media into your bloodstream. The use of this solution helps us to visualize certain organs inside the body that are not normally seen well and provides the radiologist with information which is necessary in evaluating your exam.
The contrast agent is given through a small needle placed into a vein, usually on the inside of your elbow or on the back of your hand. Contrast media is considered quite safe; however any injection carries a risk of harm including injury to a nerve, artery, or vein, infiltration/extravasation, infection, potential of renal injury; or reaction to the material being injected. Occasionally, a patient will have a mild reaction to the contrast material and develop sneezing and/or hives. Uncommonly, more serious reactions have been known to occur, including life-threatening reactions. These serious reactions are rare.
Please answer the following questions so that we may evaluate if you are at high risk for adverse effect to the contrast material:
YES NO FEMALE ONLY
- Are you Pregnant?
YES NO Do you or have you had a reaction to x-ray contrast?
YES NO Do you have a history of “kidney disease” including tumor and transplant?
YES NO Do you have allergies or asthma? ________________________________________
