Valley Diagnostic Imaging Services – Olympic Building
You have been scheduled for a CT exam that may require an injection of a contrast material (X-ray dye) into your bloodstream. This material is injected through a small needle placed in a vein. It provides added diagnostic information that helps the radiologist interpret the CT images.
The contrast substance is considered quite safe. However, an injection carries a slight risk, including injuryto a vein, infection, or reaction to material being injected. Physicians and technologists at Valley DiagnosticImaging Services are trained to treat reactions to contrast material. Most reactions are quite mild, consistingof sneezing or hives. Serious reactions are uncommon (approximately 1 in 1,000). Very rarely (less than 1 in100,000) death related to contrast administration has occurred.
Certain patients are at greater risk for experiencing a reaction to the contrast material.
Patients who are at higher risk for adverse effects are people who:
• have already had a moderate or severe allergic-type reaction to contrast material which required
• have severe allergies, asthma, or hayfever• have severe or incapacitating heart disease• have diabetes or severe kidney disease• have multiple myeloma
***Warning: Use of Glucophage, Glucovance, Metformin, or Avandamet oral medications for diabetes, must be discontinued at the time of procedure. These drugs should not be taken again for at least 48 hours following your procedure and until your doctor ensures that your kidney function is normal.
If you have any questions, please ask the technologist performing your exam.
I hereby consent to the above described procedure to be performed by VDIS - Olympic Building. I have read the above information and my questions have been answered.
