Risk of Kidney Injury Following IV Iodinated Contrast Media
December 20, 2023
Broadcasted Live and Online 12:00 noon–1:00 pm, Eastern Time
Moderator: Andrew Rosenkrantz, MD
Speakers: Robert McDonald, MD, PhD, Jennifer McDonald, PhD
Over the past 20 years, the nephrotoxic risk of iodinated contrast material has become a topic of debate, as more recent evidence from higher-quality studies now suggest that many cases of what was considered contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) were likely cases of mistaken causal attribution; most of these cases represented either acute kidney injury (AKI) caused by any of myriad other known factors that can adversely affect renal function and were coincidentally present at the time of contrast media exposure (contrast-associated AKI (CA-AKI)) or a manifestation of the normal variation in renal function that increases with worsening renal function.
Join Robert McDonald, MD, PhD, and Jennifer McDonald, PhD, for a review of their article and the current state of knowledge on CI-AKI and CA-AKI including the incidence, risk factors, outcomes, and prophylactic strategies in the identification and management of these clinical conditions.
- To discuss critical distinctions between true contrast-induced acute kidney injury and acute kidney injury that is concurrent with, but unrelated to, exposure to iodinated contrast media
- To describe the incidence of contrast-induced acute kidney injury, based on the latest evidence
- To review the risk of morbidity resulting from contrast-induced acute kidney injury, based on the latest evidence
