Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is believed to be a safer type of medical imagining. Having an MRI does not expose the patient to excessive X-rays or ionizing radiation from computed tomography (CT) scan or positron-emission tomography. In addition, MRI imagining is noninvasive unless the use of a contrast agent is needed. The primary contrast agent used for MRI imaging is gadolinium contrast, which was once believed to be safe and did not retain within the body. However, multiple anecdotal reports over the past few years and recent studies show otherwise. So, what are the known health issues associated with gadolinium contrast usage?
I also want to thank The LightHouse Project and the MRI Gadolinium Toxicity Illnesses Facebook group for spreading awareness on the dangers of gadolinium-based contrast agents. Please support their work. To those who are affected or have loved ones that were affected by gadolinium toxicity, I hope you can recover and find peace.
