Precautions

US BOXED WARNING:
-NEPHROGENIC SYSTEMIC FIBROSIS (NSF): Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) increase the risk for NSF among patients with impaired elimination of the drugs. Avoid use in such patients unless the diagnostic information is essential and not available with noncontrasted MRI or other modalities. NSF may result in fatal or debilitating systemic fibrosis affecting the skin, muscle, and internal organs. Do not administer this drug to patients with chronic, severe kidney disease (GFR less than 30 mL/min/1.73m2) or acute kidney injury. Patients should be screened for acute kidney injury and other conditions that may reduce renal function. For patients at risk for chronically reduced renal function (e.g., greater than 60 years, hypertension, or diabetes), estimate the GFR through laboratory testing. Do not exceed the recommended dose and allow a sufficient period of time for elimination of the drug from the body prior to readministration-administration.

Safety and efficacy have not been established in patients younger than 18 years.

Consult WARNINGS section for additional precautions.
