New AHRQ Summary Assesses Evidence on Contrast Media and Prevention
of Contrast-Induced Nephropathy
An evidence-based summary from AHRQ is available to help clinicians make treatment
decisions related to Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN), an acute kidney dysfunction
that may occur after exposure to intravascular contrast media and not attributable to other
causes. Findings of the summary are based on two systematic reviews. Researchers
found that the risk of CIN does not differ between the various types of contrast mediums,
and evidence is limited on strategies to prevent CIN. To view and download electronic
copies of the full research summary, visit the Effective Health Care Program website.
