NIBIB organized a workshop at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to explore concerns about the safety of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) and gadolinium retention. The workshop was co-sponsored by NIH, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The research roadmap resulting from this workshop identifies knowledge gaps about gadolinium retention and prioritizes directions for needed research.
