Abstract

Gadoteric acid and gadodiamide molecules havegadolinium-containing chelate structures that areused in magnetic resonance tomography (MRT). [1].Over the past two decades, they were considered safeand effective for medical imaging. However, recentresults indicate the presence of gadolinium in the skinand soft tissues in patients with renal insufficiency,even with the current hemodialysis [2]. Nephrogenicsystemic fibrosis (NSF), which was described in1997, is a recently discovered rare disease ofunknown etiology that affects patients with renalinsufficiency. The development of NSF was directlylinked to the influence of gadolinium-containingmagnetic resonance contrast agents in 2006 [3].
